Unformatted text preview:The separation of science fiction and reality wasn't too far apart, as Bell and IBM were building voice control devices in the 1950's, 60's, and 70's, they just were not capable of fully integrated control (TheNewEconomy.com Staff, 2014). In the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, astronauts must rely on an onboard computer named HAL 9000 to safely deliver them to their destination. Things turn horribly wrong when HAL decided to talk over, which foreshadows another predicted technology of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Artificial Intelligence is a growing concern today, as our society grapples with a machine's ability to make decisions on their own. References - TheNewEconomy.com Staff .
