ABSTRACT OF TALK
01: HAL's Legacy.\ Meet the film's creator, David Stork, and see a pre-broadcast screening of his 90-minute documentary. This fascinating film moves between clips from 01: A Space Odyssey,\ leading research labs, and interviews with Arthur C. Clarke, Marvin Minsky, Gordon Moore, Rodney Brooks, Larry Smarr, Daniel Dennett, Raymond Kurzweil , Doug Lenat, and more. These contributors to \HAL's Legacy\ have given us more than a scorecard for the film and novel. They have shown the reasons for the way things developed -- and may continue to develop -- to 2001 and beyond.
The film was produced by the InCA and funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. A shortened version airs nationwide on PBS television Tuesday, November 27 at 11 pm in all US time zone.
