Great documentary on AI ..... worth a watch. Have added rink but not sure which countries you can view.

Imagine you could make a copy of a loved one. A digital clone with a life of its own – their Avatar. That’s the dream of biomechanical engineer, Dr Jordan Nguyen, and he says we have the technology to do it right now in the form of Virtual Reality.

VR might be thought as way to play games but as Jordan discovers, it’s so much more. VR is being used to face phobias, to combat trauma and in the case of one Newcastle man, Angus, help to re-verse the effects of a catastrophic spinal injury.
