The Prototype Movie (2013) by Andrew Will is one of the best coming films Sci-Fi movies to look forward to in 2013. If you are not aware of my affinity for Kurzweil’s work then you aren’t paying attention and need to catch up on some reading, especially Abundance. I enjoy a good movie, but I love a great “thinking” movie, I’m hoping for the later in the Prototype movie. Look past the normal Hollywood facade.
What are your concerns when there is a fully aware Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robotic being roaming the Earth? It is not so very far off. LS3 aka “Big Dog” has been in development for years now and has a exceptionally fast cousin. Obviously being led by the defense sector this places The Prototype movie in a significant realistic setting in the next several years. Add the adaptation of technology and its blending with human capabilities, which Kurzweil discusses (think Google’s Glass Project), and you’re not so very far from his described Singularity.
The interesting component of the Prototype movie is the massive amount of work required to make these things realistic. Over the past year I’ve seen several of the leading technologies and their current status. There are so many different applications for nearly every component capability which enables a Singularity entity that the concern could be that the date at which the Singularity actually occurs will be delayed by distraction of other markets beyond that which would directly contribute to the occurrence of the Singularity.
One thing is for sure – I’m excited to see and think through the Prototype movie!

With the focus on effects from Cyber War being “all the rage” these days this little gem from 1983 highlights one of the major inflection points where we had the opportunity to do something about the cyber vulnerabilities that have now grown exponentially while becoming exponentially more difficult and costly to correct. The movie which demonstrates hacking and phreaking (and accidentally nearly starting Global Thermonuclear War) is a must see. I’m not sure you can aspire to be A Cyber Fellow without owning WarGames (or at least having watched it several hundreds of times). Right now you can pick up a copy on Blu-ray for $7.99.
For those striking to become a Cyber Warrior I definitely recommend checking out this flick and adding it to your list of movies with cyber warfare. Once you watch the movie I recommend enjoying the a few rounds of the game at the Global Thermonuclear War site. Enjoy!
