Technology's Impact on Society: Falling in Love with my Operating System
SESSION #2 - FALLING IN LOVE WITH MY OPERATING SYSTEM
HER (Spike Jonze - 2013)
Director Spike Jonze dives us in a not-so-distant future where love, companionship and belonging are not a prerogative of human beings. This unique love story matches Theodore, a lonely and mentally fragile man, with an artificial intelligent operative system called OS1 and its voice: "Samantha".
Sex Robots are rising markets and AIs are more and more present in our daily lives. According to experts in real life no human-to-robot feeling would ever be mutual. But they could learn to "fake it" better and better.
"There definitely is ways that technology brings us closer and ways that it makes us further apart - and that's not what this movie is about. It really was about the way we relate to each other and long to connect: our inabilities to connect, fears of intimacy, all the stuff you bring up with any other human being."
- Spike Jonze
