The last job on Earth: imagining a fully automated world | Guardian Animations
Machines could take 50% of our jobs in the next 30 years, according to scientists. While we can’t predict the future, we can imagine a world without work – one where those who own the tech get rich from it and everyone else ekes out a living, propped up by an increasingly fragile state. Meet Alice, holder of the last recognisable job on Earth, trying to make sense of her role in an automated world.

Today we had our first film festival tutorial and I enjoyed very much the discussion and the way how we did it. We watched 4 short movies together by using the watch2gether online tool.
Exchange via chat went well and a lot of different ideas were shared.
The recurring issue was the human – cyborg / AI interaction. Very interestingly displayed in Retrofit.
Some of the aspects in my (and others) opinions were
Alltogether the movies showed a less a dystopian future vision (with exclusion of 2001 clip) as many sci – fi movies do.
Also Retrofit, Cyborg or Intelligence explosion movies are experimenting with the ideas of how robots or AI are to be integrated in our society, how they might react and how society might react.
What are your opinions?
Blade Runner – Final scene, “Tears in Rain” Monologue (HD)
The climax of the classic Sci-fi film “Blade Runner”. Taken from the “Final Cut” version.
“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears in rain. Time to die.”
