About the Event


On 21 March the Science & Innovation team of the British Embassy Berlin together with Berlin Sci-fi Filmfest invite you to look at artificial intelligence through a filmmaker’s lens. Join us for a unique evening event with popcorn and Pimm's, and featuring a number of AI short films that deal with the field of computer science that is already fundamentally influencing all areas of society and revolutionise them in the future.  

  • What are the real and fictional implications of AI on society and our everyday lives?
  • Is science fiction a useful media to view the advances in AI or is it actually causing 'Science Friction'? 
  • Why are we prone to viewing the future of artificial intelligence in dystopian terms?
  • How close is modern technology to realising the visions of the future, previously only imagined in science fiction?

These and other questions will be debated in a panel discussion animated by experts from both science and the creative industry. As put in the UK’s long-running Science Fiction series Doctor Who: 'When Two Worlds Collide, Anything Can Happen!'
