I just checked out the trailer for “Transcendence” which stars Johnny Depp and an ensemble cast. The film focuses on an artificial intelligence researched named Will Caster (Depp) who is attempting to create a machine that can experience human emotions and understanding. He is killed by an opponent of his views to which his wife “plugs” his unconscious mind into a machine. This leads to the machine becoming out of control as it attempts to gain power over the natural world.
The trailer for this film looks very interesting especially with the concept of the mind still being fully functional after death in a machine. The movie also seems to be questioning the boundaries that are steadily being crossed in favor of technological advances.
