HER: a movie about falling in love with an AI

11172839_detThere’s an interesting new movie hitting theaters tomorrow, called Her.  It sounds much like your typical romance movie, except in this case the guy falls in love with an adaptive AI.  Sounds pretty boring, but where it gets interesting is as the AI evolves.  Or at least, so it sounds from the very long review written up over at The Verge (go check it out if you’re interested, but be warned, it gives away a little more than the video preview below does..no big spoilers, but a lot of detail).  No, it doesn’t get all Terminator-esque, it seems to remain a heart warming story throughout, but with some really interesting perspectives on AI and our future interactions with it.
