...stories featuring AI, but that does not have to be the primary subject. And several stories feature AI, but they primarily accept them as a routine part of technology, spending little time examining aspects, issues, or reasons behind conflicts with AI trying to take over, but I still included them cause I like them. What are your picks? If you need a memory jogger. Borrowed image, JJ won't mind... Update: * Blade Runner 2049 (Oct 2017)- Added. My alphabetized list in no particular order of worthiness. For those titiles menitoned by other, their names are at the end of the specific title. 2001 A Space Odyssey (book and movie)- issues were humans ask an AI to be less than truthful. A.I.- AI (David) crossing the threshold of contemplating his existence and love. Alien- Bad robot programmed by Weyland-Yutani Industries, maker of "shake and bake" planets Aliens- Better robot who prefers to be called an Artificial Human. Battlestar Galactica- AI bites the hand that created and oppresses it (AI perspective). This AI is self aware, contemplates its existence, and also believes in God. Blade Runner- Repressed replicants buck their oppression. Blade Runner 2049 (Oct 2017)- Joi, K's A.I. companion. She is well written, sexy, and compelling. Chappie (Centaurr post 13) Colossus: The Forbin Project- The basic story: the US creates a supercomputer and places it in control of our nuclear arsenal. Colossus has been given a set of parameters: if anyone attacks the US, automatically strike back. Other countries are told of the parameters as a disincentive to attack us. And, the system removes the chance of human error on our part.(Thomas Veil post 15) Cyborg (Centaurr post 13)) Culture Novels- AIs in the Culture novels. Enormously powerful artificial minds that simultaneously interact with humans, animals and aliens, run all of the systems aboard their craft or habitat, manipulate powerful fields in higher-dimensions, manage huge weapons arsenals, yet still bitch about each other and have their own personalities. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_series (SoggyCheese) Demon with the Glass Hand Outer Limits Episode (written by one of my favorite authors, Harlan Ellison, who actually sued James Cameron claiming The Terminator [from your list] ripped off his story Soldier [also an Outer Limits episode] and this episode) (D.T.) Do Android Dream of Electric Sheep?- basis for Blade Runner, author Philip Dick who also wrote We Can Remember it for You Wholesale (Upon which Total Recall was based). Ex Machina (2015)- Incredible example of the danger prevalent in advance A.I. A brilliant film. (Added Jan 2016). Forbidden Planet- civilization destroyed by AI caretaker feeding on human id. Halo series (video game)- Cortana, faithful AI who has a bond with the Master Chief. Her (2013)- (submitted by Gav2k) I, Robot (book)- established the 3 Laws of Robotics. A series of short stories examine how these laws work out in practice. Mass Effect (video game)- Geth, laborers and tools of war. The Matrix series- Rise of the machines, 2000(?) years after. Humans don't know exactly what year it is. Morpheus thinks it's closer to 2199. Prometheus (2012)- Bad robot David. Shadowplay- Deep Space Nine. (ActionableMango post 77) Short Circuit- (Centaurr post 13) Star Trek Next Generation- Data, some outstanding themes regarding AI caretakers, and should AI have personhood rights. Star Wars series- C-3PO, R2D2. System Shock (video game)- SHODAN, rogue AI. Terminator series- Skynet, here to protect us, er... Universal Soldier (Centaurr post13) Wargames- WOPR, not rogue, just playing a game of nukes.
