Ex Machina

11

Can you imagine if, as a programmer, you call the CEO of a multinational company like Google to test a prototype of artificial intelligence? Well, something like that happens to Caleb in the 2015 film, Ex Machina. Caleb is a programmer on the staff of the great BlueBook, a very important Internet company that has multiple services, including the most used Internet search engine (see simile with Google). On a day’s work, Caleb receives a mysterious email from the company’s CEO, who founded BlueBook at age 15 and is a computer genius who tells him to meet him. When arriving at the remote island where Nathan, the head of BlueBook, finds out that the purpose of the meeting is to make the test of Turing to a prototype of artificial intelligence that he himself has developed.

Hard Candy

Starring Ellen Page and Pattrick Wilson, Hard Candy (2005) tells a story, a bit, truculent and not suitable for the whole public. I put you in situation, without revealing anything important of the film. It is the typical love story of the XXI century, boy meets girl on the Internet and they stay one day, to have a coffee. The thing up here is something normal, what is not normal is the age of the individuals, Jeff is 32 years old and Hayley is only 14 years old. Drinking coffee, Jeff, since she is a photographer, invites her to her house to make a book to Hayley and she accepts. Surely you’re wondering what will happen next, right? Well, the movie gives you a full turn so you’re stunned.

Enigma

Set in World War II, the film Enigma (2001) tells the story of Tom Jericho, a brilliant mathematician who is requested by the British secret services at Betchley Park. There code-breakers work there who have realized that the Nazis have changed the way their submarines communicate and also how they communicate with the German High Command. At the same time an important English ship with ten thousand passengers and valuable supplies is in danger of being attacked. Will Tom be able to decipher the Nazi communications with his Enigma machine?

Steve Jobs

You say, another movie Steve Jobs? And I’ll tell you, yes, but this is, to my liking, the best of all. Maybe it’s the performance of Michael Fassbender or the narrative of the film, but it seems to me a film that, all of us who are involved in the world of programming or computer science in general, should review. The film Steve Jobs (2015) does not tell anything new, who else and who least knows something of the life of which he was CEO of Apple, but is counted in a way that makes you can not lift the chair the two hours that lasts tape.

Who am i

Who Am I is a German film that tells the story of Benjamin, a typical guy who, in search of his own identity, decides to join a group of hacktivists with whom he intends to change the world. The modus operandi of this group of hackers and cyber-activist hacking groups is reminiscent of the universe currently in vogue. I’m not going to tell you that it’s a must-see movie, but if you like the hooded roll behind a computer to corrupt the current political system, I think this can be your movie.
