I watched the cracking first episode of Channel 4’s new Sunday nighter which explores the ideas of machine intelligence. The action is low-key, but the premise is as fascinating as it is chilling: If machines become sentient then are they people, and should they be treated as such? I’d probably say yes, but a few of the characters portrayed in Humans clearly disagree.


It’s not a new idea, and we’ve had a spate of similar movies recently (AI way back in 2001; I, Robot; Ex-Machina; Chappie; Her), but Humans is set in a present-day United Kingdom so it hits much closer to home.

Gripping stuff and well worth looking out for.

I wrote a little bit about this in my blog. Although the Swedish version is better, Channel 4 have still made a good show that is entertaining to watch. Just a shame about some of the cuts they made.
