Using thousands of texts, tweets and Facebook posts, a woman creates a digital version of her best friend … after he died. Artificial intelligence and years of social media data allowed her to create a bot that responds like her best friend, jokes like him, and blurs the lines between man and machine. This is death in the digital age.
An investigation into the first person deemed dangerous enough to kill… because of his ability to tweet. We explore the life and death of Junaid Hussain, the ISIS hacker who ushered in a new era of terror, mainly due to his social media celebrity. We infiltrate hacker circles in Vegas, explore undercover operations, and have a dangerous run-in outside his hometown, to understand how he went from computer nerd to third most dangerous member of ISIS.
Westworld, or real world? From people falling in love with robots to sex dolls who now have, “AI brains,” our relationship with tech is getting…complicated. We explore a sexual assault in the virtual world and Minority Report technology being used in a high security psychiatric ward. It’s too controversial for the US and will blow your mind.
Dig into the myth of Silicon Valley – where heroes are hailed and success celebrated. Silicon Valley has a secret they don’t want you to know about.

We’ll also look at the company’s secret: their ability to program algorithms that would make you more likely to click-for-affair.
A look at why the most powerful people in tech are stepping away from the products they’ve built. In a place where algorithms play god, we explore the soul searching Silicon Valley is doing.
