Artifice Girl

With all that’s being marketed as artificial intelligence out there, this could be an interesting movie for at least some people who might like to see a merging of technology and humanity.

If you’re not appreciative of movies driven entirely by dialog, this is not your movie. There’s a bit of suspended disbelief too that may not sit well with some people, but it is a movie and like most things out of Hollywood, it’s pretty easy to find some flaws when compared with the real world.

Still. The idea of using a chatbot to catch pedophiles is not bad. It’s also not new.

If you’ve never heard of Negobot, or Lolita Chatbot, it became public in 2013 – about a decade before ‘Artifice Girl’, and if some of the dialog wasn’t borrowed from that Wikipedia page, I would be surprised.

Even so, it was a pretty good movie. Topical in how we are responsible for what we create, topical in how imperfect we are as a species, and topical about how we ourselves are reflected in our technology, like so many bits of broken glass on the floor sometimes.

Overall, I think it could be a fairly important movie at this time since everyone is agog over large language models such as ChatGPT.
