The State of Artificial Intelligence in 15 Visuals [Infographic]


Pretty much every cinematic portrayal of artificial intelligence has been less than encouraging. HAL 9000 kills the crew members on the Discovery in 2001: A Space Odyssey, making us all a little bit afraid of handing the reins over to computers. Sonny kills his creator in I, Robot, increasing worldwide scepticism about the integration of humans and their smart robots. And things don't fare much better in many other products of Hollywood, like Tron, The Matrix, Blade Runner, and Terminator. Even real life AI has given us pause.
