Artificial Immortality, matinee session on bioethics
March, 8 and 9
On March 8 and 9 we organize with the Americana Film Fest and the Department of Education of the Generalitat de Catalunya, two matinee sessions to promote bioethical reflection among students of schools and institutes.
On this occasion we will deal with the subject of artificial intelligence (AI) with the documentary "Artificial Immortality". If you were able to create an immortal version of yourself, would you? Until this decade, that question was the stuff of science fiction, but now experts in the fields of artificial intelligence and robotics suggest it will indeed be possible.
This cinematic documentary explores the latest technological advancements in AI, robotics and biotech, and poses the question: what is the essence of the human mind, and can this be replicated? Or even more unsettling, could we one day meet cloned versions of ourselves – clones which are better, smarter, and immortal?
