Today I’m excited to welcome guest blogger Brian to talk about Artificial Intelligence in Disney movies! Brian works for Enlightened Digital, where you can learn all about the latest tech and business news.
Artificial Intelligence, or AI for short, is something that has made an appearance in a number of Disney movies. Below Brian explores just a few of these and shares a fascinating graphic all about how AI has been represented in films throughout the years, including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars films.
The relationship between humans and AI in the movies is often complicated, much like it is in reality. Throughout the years, we’ve seen film representations of AI that range from benevolent companions seeking to help their human counterparts to hostile machines bent on the total destruction of humankind.
Disney has had no shortage of films that feature or deal with the subject of AI. Their first iteration on the subject came in 1999 with their Disney Channel Original movie Smart House! Since then Disney has acquired both Pixar and Marvel studios which means they been behind all the recent Star Wars, Iron man, and Avengers movies which all heavily highlight different forms and types of AI.
Take a look at the graphic below and let us know your thoughts! Are the movies we produce too fearful? Do we represent the future of AI well? Share your comments below!
