Entrepreneurs thinking about the future of artificial intelligence in business may want to look to an unlikely source of inspiration: their TVs.
Business leaders continue to devise new ways to integrate AI technology into their organizations, and while many television programs focus on how AI could one day pose an existential threat to humanity, fictitious representations of AI could also help unlock ideas for new innovations to be developed in the future. be made possible in a day.
AI storylines have graced both the small screen and the silver screen for decades, but in recent years these concepts seem to be popping up in more TV shows than ever. They are also popular in literature.
Here are five TV shows featuring buildings with AI.
1. Western World
Based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film of the same name, Westworld centers on an amusement park filled with android robots called “hosts” that allow visitors to express their frustrations and act out their fantasies, even if it’s violent or sexual. behavior means. The hosts are programmed to do no harm to the people who visit the park. This premise serves as a reminder that AI tools should be designed to protect the user, not just provide usability.
2. Made for love
What would you do if your spouse wanted to monitor your life by putting a microchip in your brain? Such is the dilemma of Made for Love’s Hazel Green, the wife of a tech titan named Byron Gogol. While this sci-fi scenario may not be the impetus for the next innovation to come out of Silicon Valley, the virtual reality complex where Green and Gogol live, dubbed “The Hub,” isn’t nearly as far-fetched. The Hub’s VR simulations can serve as inspiration for future in-home AI products that go a step beyond traditional TV.
3. Black mirror
Black Mirror, a collection of standalone sci-fi episodes akin to The Twilight Zone, looks at technological innovation through a satirical lens, examining the human ramifications associated with technological advancement. In one episode, AI-powered robot bees replenish the dwindling population of real bees — until hackers infiltrate the robots and use them as murder weapons. In reality, scientists at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands have already built a bee-like drone designed to pollinate plants. The so-called “Delfly” could be one of many examples of AI-powered robots serving a critical environmental purpose in the future.
4. Almost Human
In a world where crime is spiraling out of control, Almost Human proposes that police officers team up with robotic partners as the best way to keep the peace. Agent John Kennex is paired with an android named Dorian who exhibits emotions, making human-machine collaboration difficult. The clutch isn’t as improbable as it sounds. The robot from the French robotics company Aldebaran, called ‘Pepper’, was billed as ‘the first humanoid robot designed to live with humans’. Pepper was created for Japanese mobile phone company SoftBank Mobile to greet shoppers in retail environments, but was later upgraded to act as a social companion in people’s homes.
5. Person of Interest
Person of Interest makes the argument that surveillance isn’t so bad: A former CIA agent and a computer programmer team up to stop crimes before they are committed using an AI-powered computer program called the Machine. Able to predict the next terrorist attack by monitoring video feeds and virtual communications, the Machine also has the capacity to identify criminals and victims of other crimes. Although facial recognition technology is banned in some places, radio waves that detect changes in heart rhythms can be analyzed to predict a person’s emotional state. The technology has health and wellness applications and can be used in job interviews and for the government and military intelligence industry.
