Director’s note:

Today we are in the midst of an invisible AI revolution, it is everywhere, and we are addicted to thinking machines that hear everything we say and see everything we do. Technology has changed my life and blown my mind. Mostly for the better, but I am also worried about its rapid development, I’m especially alarmed by the immense power of the big tech companies.
To me iHuman tackles the most important challenge of our time: how do we deal with an all reaching technology that changes our lives, our world and our future.
