About this Event

The Doc Spot Film Series kicks off this fall with a screening of “Do You Trust This Computer?”

“Do You Trust This Computer?” examines the promises and perils of this developing era. Science fiction has long anticipated the rise of machine intelligence. Today, a new generation of self-learning computers has begun to reshape every aspect of our lives. Will A.I. usher in an age of unprecedented potential, or prove to be our final invention?

The Fall 2019 Doc Spot screenings focus on the growing infrastructure of the online world, and the people making it happen – the tech designers constructing artificial intelligence, criminals coding their crimes, and the ordinary people becoming Internet sensations on streaming platforms.

Now in its 11th season, the Doc Spot Film Series is presented by the UNT Media Library and features thought-provoking and timely documentaries. Attendees are encouraged to bring lunch.
