Article: Susan Schneider on the philosophy of “Her” (Spike Jonze, 2013)

Susan Schneider, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Connecticut, writes about the philosophical questions around the movie “Her” (2013) by Spike Jonze. She speculates that future Artificial Intelligences – if we ever actually build one – might not be completely artificial constructs but, maybe, digital copies of the consciousness of deceased people. Or even snapshots of our own mind, tweaked in ways we might find useful or compelling.
