The hard drive of a computer is a mysterious place that most humans dare not attempt to fully understand. Is it all wires and hardware? Or is it the computer’s soul? This week, robotics professor Ken Goldberg from UC Berkeley will screen the short film ‘I’m Here
,’ a computer love story from director Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are, Being John Malkovich
, various kickass music videos). In this short science-fiction romance between two computers in the everyday world, professor Goldberg presents his examples of new robots in relation to his research in “superhuman surgery” and “cloud robotics.” In other words, computers might have feelings too, so think twice before calling your computer every name in the book when it’s running really slow. See the film on Sunday, March 18, at the Rafael Film Center. 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. $12. 7pm. 415.454.1222.
