The future of two ‘inevitable’ parts of the human condition; work and death

May 28, 2014

The film focuses on how future technology could significantly change two major facets of human life; work and death. It explores how AI and technological singularity could be achievable in the next 30 years - how job obsolescence/technological unemployment could consequently occur and how immortality may not be a thing of science fiction. Will we work, age or even die in the future? Is a paradigm shift on its way - how will it fare with the largely impoverished global populace - will it transfigure and elevate us, or, will entropy ensue?

Will it always be work - consume - die?

“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” - Isaac Asimov
