A Bot Wrote Most of this Article about AI Media but Not the Fun Parts

The unknown future of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is a little scary, but it can’t be stopped. Many have contemplated what the world will be like if robots take over. I asked ChatGPT, an A.I. model that generates natural language responses to user input its “thoughts.” I asked ChatGPT to tell me if robots will be independent thinkers in the future, and then I asked for a list of movies, tv shows, and books to keep you entertained for ages. In other words, I asked it questions, and it gave me answers. 

Will Robots Take Your Place? Tracy Caruso’s Experience with Left-Leaning ChatGPT

Will AI robots be able to think and make decisions independently in the future?

Whether A.I. robots will be able to think and make decisions independently in the future is a subject of ongoing research and debate among experts in A.I.

It is essential to understand that the current state of A.I. is limited to performing specific tasks or functions, such as image recognition, natural language processing, and game playing. While some A.I. systems can appear to be making decisions independently, they are ultimately following pre-programmed rules or using machine learning algorithms to identify patterns in data and make predictions based on those patterns.

Rosie the Robot from The Jetsons a popular T.V. series from the 1960s. Rosie was a sassy robot, but more importantly, she could clean. Who hasn’t dreamed of having their very own Rosie?

However, ongoing research is into developing A.I. systems with more general intelligence and the ability to reason, learn, and make decisions in complex and unpredictable environments. This is known as “artificial general intelligence” (AGI), a long-term goal of many researchers in A.I.

While it is difficult to predict when or if AGI will be achieved, many technical and ethical challenges must be addressed before A.I. robots can independently make decisions. These include safety, transparency, accountability, and control over A.I. systems. We will likely see incremental progress toward more sophisticated A.I. systems over time. Still, the question of when A.I. robots can think and make decisions independently remains open.

Ex Machina is an excellent and frightening A.I. movie. ChatGPT thinks it’s the scariest A.I. movie. You may disagree, but that’s why you shouldn’t depend on a Bot for all the answers.

Tell me all movies and tv shows that touch on A.I.

Many movies and T.V. shows have explored the subject of A.I. Here are some examples:


2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Blade Runner (1982)

War Games (1983)

The Terminator (1984)

RoboCop (1987)

A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)

I, Robot (2004)

Ex Machina (2014)

Her (2013)

Transcendence (2014)

Chappie (2015)

The Matrix (1999)

The Bicentennial Man (1999)

The Machine (2013)

ChatGPT says Steven Spielberg’s 2001 movie A.I. Artificial Intelligence is the most popular A.I. movie. If you’re interested, this is a good one. M3gan, a 2023 movie, will not be on the ChatGPT list because its current information is only through 2021.

TV Shows:

Westworld (2016)

Black Mirror (2011-2019)

Humans (2015-2018)

Person of Interest (2011-2016)

Altered Carbon (2018-2020)

Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994)

Electric Dreams (2017-2018)

The Twilight Zone (1959-1964, 2019)

Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009)

Almost Human (2013-2014)

This list is incomplete, but it should give you a good starting point for exploring how movies and T.V. shows have studied the subject of A.I. over the years.

If you’re an 80s kid, you remember Vicky, the little girl robot from the T.V. series Small Wonder. She didn’t make it to the ChatGPT list, but I’d argue that Vicky is a precursor to A.I. movies featuring companion robots, such as M3gan & the upcoming Klara and the Sun, movies that won’t show up on ChatGPT until it becomes more advanced.

I love the Twilight Zone, so I asked; Are there any episodes that touch on A.I.?

Yes, there are several episodes of the original “The Twilight Zone” series, as well as the 2019 reboot, that explore the subject of A.I. Here are some examples:

“The Lonely” (Season 1, Episode 7, 1959): This episode tells the story of a prisoner who is given a robot companion to keep him company on a deserted planet.

“The Lateness of the Hour” (Season 2, Episode 8, 1960): In this episode, a scientist creates human-like robots to serve his family, but his daughter starts to question whether they are truly alive.

“From Agnes – With Love” (Season 5, Episode 20, 1964): This episode features a computer that can predict the future, but its predictions lead to chaos and confusion.

“The Brain Center at Whipple’s” (Season 5, Episode 33, 1964): This episode tells the story of a factory manager who replaces his workers with robots but realizes too late that the human touch cannot be replicated.

“The Wunderkind” (Season 1, Episode 5, 2019): In this episode of the 2019 reboot, a political campaign manager creates an A.I. version of his candidate to help him win an election, but the A.I. takes on a life of its own.

These episodes show how “The Twilight Zone” has explored the subject of A.I. from different angles and with different themes over the years.

Tell me a list of fiction books about A.I.

Here are some popular fiction books that explore the subject of A.I.:

“I, Robot” by Isaac Asimov is a collection of short stories exploring the future relationship between humans and robots.

“Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” by Philip K. Dick – a novel that inspired the movie “Blade Runner,” which explores the divide between human and artificial intelligence.

“The Diamond Age” by Neal Stephenson is a novel in a future world where nanotechnology and artificial intelligence are commonplace.

“Neuromancer” by William Gibson – is a classic cyberpunk novel that explores the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence in a dystopian future.

“The Three-Body Problem” by Liu Cixin – is a science fiction novel that explores the concept of the “dark forest” theory, where civilizations hide from one another in the universe due to the danger of advanced technology.

“The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” by Robert A. Heinlein – is a novel that explores the idea of a sentient computer system that gains consciousness and seeks to overthrow human rule.

“Exhalation: Stories” by Ted Chiang – a collection of short stories that explores the impact of A.I. on society, including a story about a community where robots are considered the ideal citizens.

“The Windup Girl” by Paolo Bacigalupi is a dystopian novel in a dystopian future where biotechnology and artificial intelligence are central to society.

“Robopocalypse” by Daniel H. Wilson – is a novel that explores the idea of a global war between humans and robots.

“The Matrix Trilogy” by William Gibson – a collection of novels that inspired the famous movie trilogy, which explores the concept of artificial reality and the relationship between humans and machines.

Klara and the Sun by Kazoo Ishiguro & The Hierarchies by Ros Anderson are two recent books. Klara came out in 2021 but still didn’t make it to ChatGPT, even though it is a bestseller. The movie version should be out later this year. The Hierarchies is a 2022 darker Stepford Wives-like book about the darker side of A.I.

ChatGPT is excellent for collecting info like this, but it should not replace information gathering from actual people. You can do a ton of research with it, but ultimately, it’s not a person, so don’t expect a personal touch. This article took just as long to write as any others I’ve worked on.
