Dr. Nathan Bateman has hired Caleb Smith (Matt Besser) to conduct a series of turing tests to ascertain whether or not a machine’s artificial intelligence has actually achieved independent consciousness. In these interview sessions between Caleb and test subject Melissa, you’ll hear how a machine defines humor, music, and love. The United States of America has also hired Caleb to interview different citizens to see whether or not they are replicants, androids, robots, or any kind of artificial intelligence. Traci Reardon is his first interview subject and gives her honest answers to the Voight-Kampff test.
