If you were able to create an immortal version of yourself, would you? Is artificial intelligence the answer to achieving immortality? Ann Shin is a multi-award winning director, whose latest documentary A.rtificial I.mmortality explores the latest advancements in A.I, robotics and biotechnology and seeks to answer the question: can we replicate the human mind - let alone the human soul? Ann's explorations lead to the crossroads of religion, science, technology, philosophy and neuroscience. From Toronto, Ann speaks with Kathryn about A.rtificial I.mmortality, which is featuring at the Doc Edge film festival.
