The film artificialintelligence released back in the year 2001 which portrays a detailed view onartificial intelligence and in depth architecture of robotic boy, David. He isprogrammed in a way that he tries to project semblance of love. He is given to afamily who is in grief of their child which is in comma causing them deepaffliction.
In 1950, Alan Turing published a paper in which he proposedthe Turing Test – if a machine can fool human judges into thinking that it is ahuman while having a conversation, then the machine is said to be really”thinking”. (1) According to this movie robot shows empathy which is associatedto human aspects of life and also gains the love of his human mother until herreal son comes out of the Comma. David emotions are inclined to his goals thathe is has been programmed for which is to love and seek love of his mother.
Heis acting exactly what he has been programmed to act like which portraysartificial intelligence as a whole. Artificial intelligence depicts what advancedrobots look like. Most of the robot have general intelligence moreover, theyare mostly designed to do a specialized task like the one in thismovie(David)is designed to show love and empathy to his family. When David isseparated from his family he wants to reunite with them by becoming a real boyso that he can gain the love of his family which is human like act.
If a humanwas in same scenario he will also somehow act the same if he is abounded fromhis family so robot in this movie imitates human behaviour which is the maincore of artificial intelligence to perform human like task. Artificialintelligence defines that robots perform task that maximises the chances oftheir success. As David in this movie approaches Mecha who can help him to changeinto real boy. This clearly portrays that David want to maximise his chances ofsuccess in this world.
He struggles like a human and go through several questto reach his goal which is a human like approach. He also acts like a jealoussibling which is a projection mechanism towards sadism he has faced.
