For this essay, I’ll ask that you, in an approximately 2200 word essay, explain how three works of science fiction (a novel, a play, and a film) all contribute to your understanding of how our society will confront and adapt to technology and the future. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) we see the mad scientist create life; In Rossum’s Universal Robots (R.U.R.)(1920) we observe the creation of a race of robots; In Ex Machina (2015) we see the scientific discovery of Artificial Intelligence and robotics taken to the extreme. Synthesize what you learn in each one individually to help you find a broader idea about technology and the future, sharing with us how each thought experiment helps us imagine the possible range of effects and side effects of technological advancement.
