Marvin Minsky, director of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laborator, was an adviser on the 1968 Stanley Kubrick movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. We wonder about HAL and his paranoid rebellion if the optimist Minsky and the pessimist Kubrick are misunderstood one another.
I believe not, within the reflection on the depersonalized power, typical of Kubrick's work, the ambiguity of our being as subjects sets a key and a meeting point.
