Expect Labs & “Ex Machina” in the news!

Have you caught the new indie sci-fi flick "Ex Machina" yet? It was released in the U.S. a week ago. It’s been called “a smart, exceptionally stylish head trip” by The Washington Post and "a spooky piece of speculative fiction that’s completely plausible" by The Los Angeles Times.

Indeed, while we are many years away from making an A.I. like Ava (if it ever happens), director/writer Alex Garland’s vision of machine intelligence is much more feasible than many movie depictions of A.I. that have been trotted out over the years. Questions around the nature of consciousness are thoughtfully handled, and the film never assumes that self-awareness or motivation would be the same, or similar, for a machine.
