In Films from the Future – The Technology and Morality of Sci-Fi Movies, Andrew Maynard draws on his work on emerging technologies, responsible innovation and how we address the issues of risk. He introduces the reader to the profound capabilities presented by new and emerging technologies, and also to the complex personal and societal challenges they present.
In the twelve carefully curated movies, Maynard offers a starting point for us to explore potentially life-changing technologies and trends. From the genetic engineering of Jurassic Park and the brain-enhancing drugs of Limitless, to the ideas of human augmentation represented in Ghost in the Shell and artificial intelligence in Ex Machina. The concepts are woven together with emerging ideas on technological convergence and responsible and ethical innovation to give us a panoramic vista on where our technology might take us and how we might ensure it takes us to where we want to go.
