THE THIRTEENTH FLOOR

“One of the most beautiful science fiction thrillers ever filmed, and one of the most absorbing” (San Diego Union-Tribune).

The film will be preceded by a talk from Murray Shanahan, Professor of Cognitive Robotics at Imperial College London and a Senior Research Scientist at DeepMind, who will consider whether consciousness really can be transferred from one medium (such as the human body) to another (such as a computer).
