Today's guest on the Big Time Talker Podcast powered by Speakermatch.com is Abigail Child, who has been at the vanguard of experimental media since the 1980s. In her latest project, she offers viewers an eerie and exciting look into the present and future of artificial intelligence through the perspectives of robotics scientists, entrepreneurs, and even a Black lesbian robot named BINA48. Exploring AI’s design, potential medical applications, and exploitation in the arena of fantasies, Child’s thought-provoking film considers the emerging technology’s ethical and emotional implications, presenting a speculative not-too-distant future grounded in sci-fi.

It's premiering this month at the DocNYC film festival; get tickets and check it out at https://www.docnyc.net/film/origin-of-the-species/ and find out more about the movie at https://www.originofthespeciesfilm.com.
