Directed by visionary filmmaker Tonje Hessen Schei (DRONE, 2014), iHuman is a political thriller about artificial intelligence, power and social control. With unique deep access to the booming AI industry this film shows how the most powerful and far-reaching technology of our time is changing our lives, our society and our future.
iHuman follows pioneers at the frontline of the invisible AI revolution to see how this technology is developed and implemented. Through some of the brightest minds in the AI industry iHuman draws the roadmap to where we are going. Who punches in what codes for our future? How does AI impact who we are?
iHuman shows a growing conflict in the tech world. On one side corporations like Google claim we need AI to solve climate change, cancer or hunger. On the other side people like Bill Gates and Elon Musk fear AI is the biggest threat to humanity. iHuman investigates the consequences of the power concentration of the multi-billion-dollar AI industry that barely has any regulations. Some compare artificial intelligence to the nuclear bomb as we do not know the potential power or the consequences of this new technology. What is coming our way?
Following a sell-out world premiere Q&A with Edward Snowden at IDFA, Cosmic Cat are delighted to bring the film to UK audiences this December.
