"Incredible story of how war changes a young man and how life or death decisions made over seas can change who you are as a person forever."

Yellow Birds shows how war can create bonds between soldiers, and how quickly those bonds can be destroyed."

THE MOST HUMAN HUMAN Humanity is something that a lot of people take for granted and even lose. When hearing this, most people ask the question, "How can humans lose their humanity?" Follow Brian Christian as he shows just how people lose their humanity. With the technological advances of recent years, we are starting to be able to develop robots that act and even think like humans do. Humans are building robots that are so advanced, when presented with a test to see if a transcript was a human or robot, some people could not tell the human from the robot. This is only some of the evidence that Christian delivers as he shows how humanity is slowly drifting away from humans and towards robots. This narrative could not be more appropriate for people in today's modern day because of the importance that technology has in everyone's lives. The Most Human Human gives some food for thought on robots being able to think for themselves and even acting like humans. You will think twice about whether or not this advancement of robots is a good thing for humanity; and if this advancement continues, who knows, in ten or twenty years, will humanity even recognize itself? "Great insight on how the dependency in technology could keep progressing and cause an AI that is smarter than all humanity. It is rather concerning to think about!" NEW YORK TIMES "I knew our technology was progressing; however, I did not imagine how advanced computers were becoming in replicating human speech and thoughts. Very awesome to see how far we have come in developing technology." ED PUODZIUNAS "Loved how Christian displayed the advancement in AI and how close it is becoming to acting and thinking like a human. This is exciting to think about if you are a robot!" DEFINITELY NOT A ROBOT
