Finding Media

Here are a lists of databases that feature different kinds of media like films, audio, and pictures. 

Available Through Kanopy

Kanopy offers many different videos for you to stream, including videos on artificial intelligence. 

On the next three tabs you will see three videos currently featured on Kanopy that deal with artificial intelligence. For more videos please actually visit Kanopy

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Training Computers to Think Like Humans
  • Could a Machine Be Consious? 

Episode 34 of Redefining Reality

Kanopy Provided Description: Trace the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) from simple calculating machines to computers that can vanquish chess masters. Learn the distinction between weak AI, such as a chess-playing machine, and strong AI, which is a machine that has a truly human-like mind. Question whether strong AI is even possible.

Episode 12 of Big Data

Kanopy Provided Description: Delve into the field of artificial intelligence, discovering how computers are programmed to think and make decisions like humans. An automated version of the 20 questions game illustrates how neural networks are the key to machine learning - a technology that is now in widespread use.

Episode 15 of Mind-Body Philosophy

Kanopy Provided Description: Twentieth-century mathematicians Alan Turing and Ludwig Wittgenstein both asked: "Could machines think?" Learn how they addressed the complex concepts of language, thinking, intelligence, and consciousness. All contemporary computers and the fields of artificial intelligence and neural networks trace their origin to Turing. But Wittgenstein seems to have the last word.

On the next three tabs you will see three videos currently features on Films on Demand that deal with Artificial Intelligence. For more videos please actually visit Films on Demand

  • Artificial Intelligence: Part 1, Broken Down and Explained
  • Bringing Computer Games to Life: Artificial Intelligence and Physics
  • Artificial Intelligence: The Risks Could Outweigh the Rewards: A Debate

Films on Demand Provided Description: Refrigerators, telephones, and computers contain some form of artificial intelligence, but not all AI is created equal. In this video, explore the two forms of artificial intelligence— narrow AI and general AI.

Citation: Artificial intelligence: Part 1, broken down and explained [Video file]. (2016). Retrieved July 15, 2019, from https://fod.infobase.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?wID=99147&xtid=118734

Films on Demand Provided Description: Never short of eager programmers and willing testers, the computer game industry has long been both a hothouse and a proving ground for cutting-edge computer applications. Focusing on efforts to integrate artificial intelligence and the laws of physics into character response and movement, this program takes an inside look at how Britain’s sophisticated computer game industry is pushing the envelope of creativity. Bullfrog Productions founder Peter Molyneux, designer of mega-hit computer role-playing games including Populous and Theme Park, is featured.

Films on Demand Provided Description: As technology rapidly progresses, some proponents of artificial intelligence argue that it will help solve complex social problems and offer humans greater powers and virtual immortality. But critics of artificial intelligence argue that its rewards may be overpromised, and that the pursuit of super-cognitive computers and autonomous machines could have unintended—and scary—consequences. Should we trust or fear the promise of artificial intelligence?
