Is Google becoming a form of artificial intelligence that will benefit mankind or will it provide the necessary tool for fascists leaders to have ever more control over our lives?
In 1937 HG Wells predicted the creation of the World Brain?, a giant global library that contained all human knowledge and which would lead to a new form of higher intelligence. Seventy years later the realization of that dream was underway, as Google started scanning millions of books for its Google Books website. Google says they are building a library for mankind. Some think they have other intentions. This thought-provoking documentary tells the story of the most ambitious project ever conceived on the Internet. It’s a David vs. Goliath tale, as a ragbag army of authors, helped by the occasional librarian, takes on one of the world’s most powerful corporations.
