What if, in the near future, advances in technology allowed us to build massive arrays of supercomputers able to support emergent artificial intelligence. What if such an array was complex enough that we could upload a human mind into it. And what if that mind, freed from organic constraints and with storage, power and speed far beyond what a mere brain could provide, had tools at its disposal -- including programmable, self-assembling nanobot -- to shape the world as it saw fit. Would it be the next stage in human evolution? Or would it be the end of human kind?


It looks like a very interesting movie, but I suspect it will have one of those awful "love conquers all and saves existence yet again" kind of endings.
