In the movie Artificial Intelligence by Steven Spielberg, it is said that “creating an artificial man has always been the dream of science”. This is reflected in countless movies related to Artificial Intelligence where, usually, a humanoid robot that has to make intelligent and sometimes ethically conflicting decisions is physically represented. In this episode we review the most explored topics in AI movies, their biases, clichés and other related topics. For this we have the collaboration of Pablo García Sánchez, professor and researcher at the University of Granada, who has worked on these issues and, in addition, is a hopeless cinephile.
