Artificial Intelligence is no longer an abstract, futuristic concept – it’s here, changing our lives in countless ways, from social media algorithms and self-driving cars, to operating rooms and autonomous weapons. As our reliance on technology grows, and the possibilities of AI become seemingly limitless, its tangible and philosophical presence in our culture becomes more and more inextricable. In this conversation, we explore TV’s unique ability to reflect and question both the opportunities and risks posed by AI in life, death, love, and beyond -- as well as it's impact on the TV industry itself.
This conversation is presented by Hollywood, Health & Society, and was recorded at ATX TV Festival Season 12 (June 1-4, 2023) in Austin, TX.
