Steven Spielberg's film AI opened in Britain on 21 September. The author of the original story, science fiction writer Brian Aldiss, was never asked to a preview screening--so New Scientist arranged for him to see it. Here Aldiss describes his part in the evolution of the film, lays out his vision for the future of artificial intelligence and asks whether human consciousness could ever be programmed into a machine.
For the rest go here.

Norm, thanks for the link - that was an interesting article.

He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

Regardless, of whether it's a short story or a novel he had a right to a preview of the movie. Anything less than that is very low class of the studio and the filmmakers involved.
