In Search Of… (2018): S01E04 – Artificial Intelligence


In Search of… is an American television series that was broadcast weekly from 1977 to 1982, devoted to mysterious phenomena.

The series was revived with host Mitch Pileggi in 2002 and again in 2018 with Zachary Quinto. The original series was shown in Australia in the 1980s under the title Great Mysteries of the World with each episode having an introduction and conclusion presented by television presenter Scott Lambert.


Quinto embarks on a journey to understand how the future of artificial intelligence may already be a threat to humanity. He visits Facebook headquarters where he learns about a failed AI experiment when two chat boxes created a language that only they could understand. Zachary also gets a firsthand look at the world’s latest technology – including life-like dolls programmed with advanced AI, robots that learn and communicate, highly intelligent drones of war, and Uber self-driving cars.
