‘SUPERSAPIENS’ heads hard towards the event horizon of AI looking at the current state of technology and asking who is driving these advances and what are the real-world consequences of creating a mind more advanced than our own? In parallel, the film meets the young and innovative thinkers who apply 21st century technology to the quest of unlocking our own ancient and in-born mind-abilities.
As the scientific community and the military seek to finally unmask the matrix of human consciousness, the film poses a question: can we risk this discovery? Can we prevent ourselves from going too far?
