Ex Machina + Q&A with Murray Shanahan (scientific advisor to the film)

Free (No ticket required - First come first served)
7:30PM
INDOOR: South London Makerspace

Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, Ex Machina.

Please note: this venue has only limited seating – please bring your own chair or cushion to sit on!

Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test-charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated–and more deceptive–than the two men could have imagined.

The screening will be followed by a talk and Q&A session with Murray Shanahan, Professor of Cognitive Robotics at Imperial College London (@mpshanahan). His book “Embodiment and the Inner Life” was a significant influence on Ex Machina, and he was a scientific advisor for the film. His most recent book, “The Technological Singularity” (2015), looks into the future of artificial intelligence.
