Directed by visionary filmmaker Tonje Hessen Schei (Drone, 2014), iHuman is a political thriller about artificial intelligence, power and social control. With unique deep access to the booming AI industry this film shows how the most powerful and far-reaching technology of our time is changing our lives, our society and our future.

iHuman follows pioneers at the frontline of the invisible AI revolution to see how this technology is developed and implemented. Through some of the brightest minds in the AI industry, iHuman draws the roadmap to where we are going. Who punches in what codes for our future? How does AI impact who we are?

iHuman shows a growing conflict in the tech world. AI now permeates every aspect of our lives, but only a handful of people really have control over what it’s doing to us. The true limits of AI remain unknown - as do the extent of the consequences.

This screening will be followed by a live online Q&A with Tonje Hessen Schei hosted by journalist Timothy Revell on Thursday 25th at 7pm (GMT). This will end at approximately 9:30pm.

From 9:30pm on the 25th, the film + Q&A will be available in a recorded form until 12pm on Tuesday 2nd March. UK & IRELAND ONLY.
