    Thanks for a good one! A bit frustrated lately with iffy stories with lazy/lousy endings. This story had a beginning, middle and for goodness sake it even had an ending! The actors did a great job, especially the female lead. Well done.

    What a deeply moving and satisfying story! There was nothing trite or forumlaic about it and, having had times in my life where depression threatened to end my life, I would've loved my own SMILEY. Thanks for sharing the magic, DUST!

    I love my car now, before love`d my bike. Next love for me will be robot called Dyke; all-Seeing, all-Knowing, but Breathless and Heartless, yet Endless and "Loving".
    Which is It`s gender, my robot? Don't know. If She is or He is or They is or are?
    I know that I think – It can`t be a I.

      And when AI can self replicate with exponentially increasing process power then the AI perception of time will corresponding decelerate compared to the way humans experience time. Very possibly We humans are approaching the end of time.

    This is astonishingly good, a convincing, absorbing, completely satisfying story in thirteen minutes of hope. It doesn't end with her victory but with a triumph. Perfect.

    At the very end, I was half expecting to 'discover' that SHE was actually the AI in the equation. Perhaps M. Night Shyamalan has just warped my my sensibilities to the point where I just must have that 'TWEEST', lol. A good short film. And mostly believable. Unfortunately, we are a long, long ways off anything like A.I. and 'SMILEY'.

    nice sensible story. the storyline involving that guy from the beginning felt unnecessary though, the only part of this short that was without reason or explanation. but better that the side story be senseless rather than the whole video, which can't be said for some of the shorts on here

      +ktx49 : the spin…. I had to watch the end, then the beginning…..
      was the boy on the beach the programmer who created HER ? and she became self aware ?
      the declines because she was not a sexpot? because she was not the business bot ? were they rating HER or her smiley program ?
      Joel 2,0… what that HER ? or the interviewer ? incoming call from Joel… Joel 2.0….
      through HER eyes, it went matrix as she came to the realization of the Touring test……
      she said HE was the lie… he agreed.
      but then smiley said she needed to get a job.. he wanted her to get an AI architect job….

    今書いているSF小説のネタ探しの為、ここ数日間、DUSTの短編映画を見ていますが、この映画はAIを扱った作品の中でも屈指の完成度を誇ると思います。
    恋人をなくしたコンピュータ科学者が、うつ病患者を支援するチャットボットを開発して、AIユニコーン企業に売り込むという物語自体が独創的で、なおかつその面接時に人間に対して自らチューリングテストを仕掛けてくるAIが登場するというのも斬新です。個人の悲劇的な経験とテクノロジー描写が融合して、切ない余情を作り出している事にも驚きました。

    プロダクションデザインに言及すると、Smileyの顔インターフェイスの後ろにあるソースコード表示が、まだ試作段階の製品である事を露骨に表していて、すごくリアルに感じました。
    室内のシーンはバストショットやクロースアップを多用して、回想シーンでは思いっきりロングショットで構成するメリハリのきいた編集も見ていて飽きません。
    コントラストの強い水色や紫色の照明がとても美しく、Miraの心情がとてもよく表現されているように思えます。画面の走査線の向こう側に飛んで、Joelが機械で出来ている事をセリフに頼らず、ちゃんと画で見て分かるように工夫しているのも関心しました。脚本・監督のSuraさんは、VFXアーティストとして3DCG制作の監修も手掛けられていて、とても才能に恵まれた方ですね。

    I hate phone/skype interviews, not b/c they're boring, hard, or intimidating, but because like so many software engineer's, we're introverts.

    So I think most of you got this wrong… she was actually the AI who was being Touring tested. They gave her a deep rooted human memory(loss of bf) to ensure her compassion & "humanity" when facing decisions.

    What does lying have to do with depression? And no, not everyone with depression commits suicide. Depression happens. There's no phony happy all the time pill, depression has nothing to do with lies so I don't see the point.

    An APP isn't a friend. It's a thing to make people mindless and more dependency on digital crap.

  82. OrangeAnimation 06/05/2019
    Rispondi

    I'm chronically depressed. I wouldn't use a stupid APP. My artwork and my pet helps. Right now I'm depressed because one of my beloved pets died. But my other is helping me just fine by being with me. Creativity in my art helps me cope. I'd rather be dependent on those two things than any mindless digital crap that does what it's programmed to do. Nothing more.

  83. OrangeAnimation 06/05/2019

    Depressed people don't need some stupid APP. My pet and my art help my depressions. They're both unpredictable and not controlled by programming. Not every depressed person commits suicide either!

    The thing is (and I count this as a big plus), the central theme and plotline could have been melted across many different genre types, and it still would have the same goofy, gushy effects (those are good things). I'm happy sci-fi was your chosen vehicle; I might have missed the ride otherwise. A lovely piece of work, everyone.

    When lovers say "I'll be OK without you" if I translate to chinese, "没了你我会很好", have a meaning "without you, maybe I will be better.", is the same in English?, It's too sad to say that.
