The movie 2001: A Space Odyssey was a cool film that displays the interaction between computers and humans. David Bowman and Frank Poole embark on a journey to space with their intelligent computer programmed robot named Hal. Hal was a vital contribution to the space mission. Hal had the ability to make conversation just like a human, but unlike a human, Hal could do complex calculations and does not require sleep or food. We see Hal react violently when he was threatened to shut down. Hal develops the willingness to kill his creators for the sake of self preservation. This sparks controversy about if computer programmed robots are beneficial or detrimental to humans. Hal in this movie almost outsmarted 2 humans by lying about the purpose of the space mission, which means that in reality a robot programmed by a human may develop the knowledge and awareness to take over the human civilization. Also, robots do not require the same care and nutrients as humans. Their ability to live is dependent on a computer program to shut it down. This means if someone cannot do the proper code to disconnect a robot, physically harming the robot may not necessarily effect it. Although, the thought of robots taking over the human species is quite extreme, 2001: A Space Odyssey makes it seem less improbable.

(This review is just for the Space Odyssey movie not the other one) 2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1960s sci fi film that explores how the "future" (at the time) will be. The story focuses on the evolution of technology, artificial intelligence and how humans can evolve with this technology. One interesting factor in the movie was the introduction of the character/technology HAL 9000, who interacted with the characters on the spaceship almost as if it were a human. HAL is an example of early versions of artificial intelligence. For the time period it was filmed, the movie is well produced and impressive! I personally enjoyed it but felt it could be static/confusing at parts. Overall a very cool film though!
