[NEWS] Three links about sci-fi and pop culture: Westworld and AI, machine learning, Janelle Monáe

  • This fascinating look at Westworld takes a look at how changing representations of artificial intelligence influence storylines in pop culture, as we shift from fear of AI to potential sympathy. The AV Club has it.
  • Machine learning these days is demonstrating an astounding ability to understand complex systems. Quanta Magazine has it.
  • io9 notes an upcoming queer Afrofuturist film from Janelle Monáe (also starring Tessa Thompson as a love interest) that sounds amazing.
