From the subjective perspective, the number of documentaries about the subject Artificial Intelligence and robotics is small. It seems, that the topic is hard to visualize for the audience and in most cases, the assumption is, that the recipient isn't familiar with computers at all. I've found the following documentaries:
- The Computer Chronicles - Artificial Intelligence (1985)
- The Machine That Changed the World (1991), Episode IV, The Thinking Machine
- Robots Rising (1998)
- Rodney's Robot Revolution (2008)
The subjective awareness is, that the quality of the films in the 1980s was higher than in modern documentaries, and in 50% of the documentaries Rodney Brooks is the host. Are more documentaries available which can be recommended to watch?
Focus on non-fictional documentaries
Some fictional movies were already mentioned in a different post. For example Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970), Bladerunner (1982) or A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001). They are based on fictional characters which doesn't exist and the presented robots are running with a Hollywood OS. This question is only about nonfictional motion pictures.
