the next few days

just shooting pool,

getting drunk together.


And when you discover what you've

missed out on, in about a year,

you're gonna regret it

for the rest of your life.

Good call.


do you know what

the Turing Test is?


I know what the Turing Test is.

It's when a human

interacts with a computer.

And if the human doesn't know

they're interacting

with a computer,

the test is passed.

And what does a pass tell us?

That the computer has

artificial intelligence.

Are you building an AI?

I've already built one.

And over the next few days,

you're gonna be the human

component in a Turing Test.

Holy shit. Yeah, that's right, Caleb.

You got it.

Because if that test is passed,

you are dead center

of the greatest scientific

event in the history of man.

If you've created

a conscious machine,

it's not the history of man.

That's the history of gods.



I'm Caleb.

Hello, Caleb.

Do you have a name?



I'm pleased to meet you, Ava.

I'm pleased to meet you, too.

I've never met

anyone new before.

Only Nathan.

Then I guess we're both

in quite a similar position.

Haven't you met

lots of new people before?

None like you.


So we need to break the ice.

Do you know what I mean by that?


What do I mean?

Overcome initial

social awkwardness.

So let's have a conversation.


What would you like to have

a conversation about?

Why don't we start with you telling

me something about yourself?

What would you like to know?

Whatever comes into your head.

Well, you already know my name.

And you can see

that I'm a machine.

Would you like to know how old I am?


I'm one.

One what?

One year or one day?


When did you learn

how to speak, Ava?

I always knew how to speak,
