Transcendence (10-Apr-2014)

Director: Wally Pfister

Writer: Jack Paglen

Keywords: Sci-Fi

A scientist's efforts to create a thinking computer face violent opposition from activists disgusted with his radical advancements.

ABSTRACT
Renowned scientist and artificial intelligence expert Will Caster strives to create a thinking machine capable of surpassing the capabilities of the most intelligent human brain, earning fame and notoriety in equal measure as he pushes toward his goal. Transcendence follows an idealistic antihero's quest for knowledge as it runs up against the violent opposition of Luddite protesters favoring old-fashioned organic human ingenuity, ultimately turning into a race against time to save "old ways" as Will appears poised to be the first to transcend what it means to be human.
