I's - A feature film set on the threshold of infinity

Support this project on Kickstarter! --> Set in the near future, “I’s” is a small story of humanity on the precipice of an unimaginable transformation in our civilization. - The story takes place over the last five days of our civilization as we know it, leading up to the Singularity - an utterly unknowable future in which there may be no place for us at all. We follow bike messenger Mason Turk as he faces the few final days of humanity's journey, and his choice between finding solace in the present or racing to reforge the only connection that has ever truly mattered to him.

The film moves from the urban streets of San Francisco through suburbia all the way to a pastoral community farm - and then pulls us back to the heart of the city. Along the way, it explores what it means when humans - the toolmakers - have invented our greatest tool: the device that can out-invent us.

How Much Longer Before Our First AI Catastrophe?

How Much Longer Before Our First AI Catastrophe? | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

What will happen in the days after the birth of the first true artificial intelligence? If things continue apace, this could prove to be the most dangerous time in human history. It will be an era of weak and narrow artificial intelligence, a highly dangerous combination that could wreak tremendous havoc on human civilization. Here’s why we’ll need to be ready.
