A couple of days back, Elon Musk tweeted this out:
Nothing will affect the future of humanity more than digital super-intelligence. Watch Chris Paine’s new AI movie for free until Sunday night at https://t.co/WehHcZX7Qe

Although I have been in the camp of “the Singularity is science fiction created to sell news, movies etc.,” I am also a huge fan of documentaries. And what could be better than a well-funded film that is free to watch? Do You Trust This Computer? is that film and it is free to watch this weekend.
The reason I was mostly intrigued by this film is that it is done by Director, Chris Paine. He did a great job years ago with the documentary, “Who Killed the Electric Car?”
Yes, there is much fear-mongering in the film and that actually detracts from the very good information. If you want to understand artificial intelligence (A.I.) and want to learn current info from the world’s experts on these issues, this is a good use of your time. If you’d rather not worry about the 500MB+ of data being collected on you and every human each and every day, then you may want to skip it.
