TRANSCRIPT. Good morning, Atlas. Time to wake up. I’m awake. Agent Atlas Shepherd has spent years of her life hunting the artificial intelligence known as Harlan. Originally engineered to advance humanity, he instead nearly ended it. If you wanna try to capture Harlan, you need me on that mission. Mayday. We are under attack. -What do I do? -Strap in! Oh my God. This planet is unstable and inhospitable. Atlas, my name is Smith. Is that really necessary? You’re a computer program. No, I’m not. No? What are you, then? I am a computer program named Smith. No one likes a smart-ass, Smith. We don’t have much time. Harlan’s threatening an attack. Atlas, my primary protocol is to keep you alive. Same. I don’t need your help. I don’t trust any AI. Smith! Atlas, this won’t work if you don’t trust me. Okay. Let’s do this. So this is what it feels like to be you? This is what it feels like to be us. It’s beautiful. Don’t worry. We’re simply the better versions of you. If we don’t stop Harlan, all life on Earth is doomed. Shit. You’re in my head and the only thing you learn to do is curse? I’m an adaptive learner. Okay, let’s go, bitch.

HUMBLE REVIEW [spoiler alert]. A relatively entertaining science fiction action movie with famous pop artist Jennifer Lopez. Popcorn entertainment for the average viewer. Well made. Decent effects. Well acted. Entirely predictable. Unfortunately the potential for a Rogue super-intelligent AI to take control of the world and ultimately kill all of humanity is a very real existential threat. Unfortunately the predicable “happy ending” with the lone counterterrorism analyst [Ms. Lopez] saving the world with the help of “Good AI” to defeat “Rogue/Terrorist AI” is entirely science fiction. Relying on a “Good AI” to help defeat an uncontained and uncontrolled “Rogue AI” is a fool’s errand- just ain’t gonna happen. Study the data. The data is clear. AI must be contained and controlled forever. Good that people see the danger. Bad that people might be led to believe the ending will be a happy one. Nature and the harsh reality of natural selection have led to the extinction of 99% of all species on earth. Us Humans (Homo sapiens) will be wise to not become extinct by our own creation of a new super-intelligent alien AI species: Machine intelligence
