What does it mean to be conscious in a world that is becoming increasingly artificially intelligent? Can machines really see? Based on an interview with a professor in artificial intelligence, this short documentary uses analog techniques to explore the human tendency to anthropomorphise simple drawings, and how we might do the same to machines.
