Watch: "Aging in America"

A highly charged journey across the landscape of aging. This film travels from coast to coast exploring the unprecedented highs and the prolonged lows of growing old. From burlesque dancers in their seventies to geriatric prison wards, this film takes us to the extreme ends of longevity while asking “What is a good old age?”

Watch: "The Internet and Virtual Reality"

For all their ubiquity, personal computers, email, and the Internet represent a major departure in the evolution of computer technology. Witness the exciting and improbably birth of personal computing in the 1970s, and explore the nature of the virtual world where more and more people now reside. 

 

Watch: "Artificial Intelligence"

Trace the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) from simple calculating machines to computers that can vanquish chess masters. Learn the distinction between weak AI, such as a chess-playing machine, and strong AI, which is a machine that has a truly human-like mind. Question whether strong AI is even possible. 

 

Watch: "Greek Gods, Philosophy, & Science"

The Greeks created one of the richest and most influential cultures in human history. From myths to music to philosophy, as you delve into this world, you’ll explore the major Greek thinkers and the big questions they tackled-and gain a new understanding not just of their world, but also to better understand humanity today.
