Back to the Future: What we can Learn From HAL 9000Hari Seldon Stage
Critics consider Kubrick’s “2001-A Space Odyssey” from 1968 as the most influential science fiction movie ever. Looking back at its release, we can learn some surprising lessons esp. from reflecting on some details that characterize the eminent artificial intelligence, called HAL 9000. What role will the personality of a self-conscious chatbot play in the future? What kind of dialogue should he head for with humans? How much control can we hand over to systems of automated decision-making? We still lack many of what Kubrick has envisioned 50 years ago. But we are already in need to answer some of the questions, he had asked.
