The Singularity Arrives In Mischa Rozema's SUNDAYS
A scifi short being prepared by the Amsterdam based commercials director as a prelude and proof of concept for a planned feature film, Sundays is built around the idea that a time is coming soon where computer intelligence will outstrip human intelligence on the planet, arriving at a sort of technological singularity.
But enough of the reading ... what's going to sell you on this are Rozema's visuals. Check those in the pitch video below and head over here to support the project.
We are fast approaching an event, unparalleled in our history. A tipping point known as a technological singularity. It's the moment when computer power surpasses human intelligence. This moment is inevitable. Our world will change forever.
We are on the verge of having to decide the future of humanity. In order to maintain we might have to change the very definition of what it means to be human. So what exactly is 'human'? Where does it begin and where does it stop. Are we willing to stretch its definition and our ethics to corners we never could have imagined. Is there an infinite deadline on our existence?
This is the story of what it means to be human and how the characteristics of what makes us special stand the test of time. It's evident that technologies are now tied to our evolution as a species. Does our biology define us as human beings or is it the ideals for which humanity stands for?
