2. Blade Runner 

Blade Runner

Now, let’s move on to one of the most recognizable AI movies ever, depicting a time when people co-existed with humanoids. What could possibly go wrong? Well, imagine you’re a robot with just four years to live. Would that give you enough time to run away and find the man who created you, giving you the chance to extend your life?

You might think so, but the task is far from easy. Blade Runner himself is hunting these AI creatures. The original version, directed by Ridley Scott, was based on Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?“ If you enjoy it, the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve, jumps forward thirty years and dives even deeper into the topic of artificial intelligence evolution.

Imagine being able to live your darkest fantasies. This is what happens in the Delos world, which is populated by human-like androids. For $1,000 a day, each visitor can spend time in one of three places: the Western World, Medieval World, or Roman World, going wherever their imagination takes them. 

As you might expect, everything goes fine until one day, the robots’ software is infected by a virus. And as a result, they run amok and attack park visitors. It’s no spoiler if we tell you that not everyone comes out alive. Find out what happens in the 1973 movie or the series remake from 2016.

Technology has become integral to our lives. Voice assistants like Siri or Alexa help us both at work and in our day-to-day, but their role is limited to simple tasks. In contrast, “Her” presents a much more advanced version of voice assistants

9. Black Mirror 

Black Mirror

This ‘Black Mirror’ series refers to our collective anxiety about the modern world and technological developments. Each episode tells a different, vivid, and gripping story, dealing with the theme of contemporary technoparanoia placed in an alternative reality or near future. The problems reflect our society or the consequences of actions that may end up being very dangerous for humankind. 

For example, one episode shows us a reality in which people have chips in their heads that record all events and allow them to be played back like a movie. The series won’t cheer you up, but it’s very thought-provoking, and it will make you reflect on aspects of life.

10. Super Intelligence 

Super Intelligence

Superintelligence follows a different path, capturing what could go wrong with artificial intelligence but in a fun, often ridiculous way. It tells the story of Carol Peters, an ordinary woman living her life until, one day, she starts hearing voices from different devices. As it turns out, the very first AI chose her as an observation object and took control of her life. 

This is the first step for AI to rule the world, and Carol is the only person who can stop it and, ultimately, save humankind. If you want a movie that helps you forget about the serious side of life, this one’s for you.

11. Ex Machina 

Ex Machina

The final place on our list goes to an award-winning hit. Ex Machina tells the story of a young computer scientist called Caleb who wins a contest at work. He’s then sent to a lab to join the company’s CEO, Nathan. 

While there, Caleb meets the beautiful Ava: the world’s first ‘female’ artificial intelligence. At this point, Caleb realizes he’s the human counterpart in a Turing test to define Ava’s consciousness. However, it soon becomes clear that the humanoid is far more self-aware than either man suspects. 

Similar to “Her,” the movie focuses on the robot’s ever-evolving personality.
