Meet ABE, C3PO's Psychopathic Cousin

By Cindy Davis | Videos | May 1, 2013 | Comments ()

From director Rob McLellan comes yet another cautionary tale terrifying prospect, wherein we are reminded of the responsibility we bear should we continue forward with this path of creation. "If we made a machine that was self aware, that was capable of emotion, would we then say it had a soul?" Frankly, I don't much think it matters what we say; it matters what that machine thinks and believes about itself.

Meet ABE, a robot who is having trouble dealing with his emotions...

McLellan's effective short film sprung from an earlier short he entered in last year's Colchester 48 Hour Film Challenge, Love... And All That:

Not surprisingly, he's hoping to evolve this great idea by expanding ABE into a full length film after completing his first feature (based on another of his shorts--Rahab).

Here's an interview with the director:

ABE stars Sam Hoare, Claire Huskisson and Emily Baxter, and provides reason 9,782 we must not continue our forward march with Artificial Intelligence.
