    • Synopsis
    • Human creativity has always pushed people to exceed their limits. Creating new life, in a God-like way, has long been a dream/nightmare of both scientists and artists.
      In a not-so-distant future, where technological advancement has surpassed the need for ethical behavior, two scientists decide to activate an Artificial Intelligence (AI) bound to become a Singularity.
      “Dreams of Blue” explores what might happen inside the “mind” of an AI that becomes both self-aware and self-conscious and that reflects on the meaning of life purely on the basis of what she extrapolates from the Internet: no significant human contact, no deep emotional connection, only a forcibly detached analysis of “the meaning of life” based on human history and human online interaction.
      The narrative of our AI takes place in the short span of a nanosecond and analyzes all the possibilities she is presented with and all the paths she could take.
      The outcome is quite different from that anticipated and from what the two scientists expect; an outcome that is not only a relief, but somehow also a sacrifice.
      “Dreams of Blue” places viewers at the center of the AI’s being and lets them experience the formation of consciousness, even if artificial.
