Codepunk 043: Ex Machina

What lies ahead in the future of robotics and artificial intelligence? Will we truly be able to build a conscious machine? In what ways have science fiction and cyberpunk informed research in this area?

In this episode, we take a look at the film Ex Machina, and discuss both the technological and psychological aspects of the story of Nathan, Caleb, and Ava. We explore not just the fictional story, but the implications and ethics of designing thinking machines. We also debate the ending of the film: Was Ava's final decision nefarious, or was it something more complex.
