race in cinema
Assignment: some critics argue that the five stereotypes of African Americans found in early cinema (the coon, Uncle Tom, Mammy, the Tragic Mulatto, and the Black
Buck) can still be found in contemporary Hollywood films.
Watch a modern film that has an African American lead character.
Discuss how the film depicts the African American character. do the same old racial stereotypes still apply? how does this character relate to other White characters
in the film?
Structure & Writing
Develop an original thesis that explains how the character or characters in the film either fit into the classical stereotype or how they overturn it. then come up
with several examples from the film that support your argument.
The best way to structure the introductory paragraph is to select a few specific aspects about the film that you want to discuss or analize in detail, and then relate
them to your thesis statement.
Clearly state your thesis and then preview your points. Make sure the subject of your paper reflects your thesis.
Structure the rest of the essay with well-written logical paragraphs that all include an introduction, body and conclusion. These should all support the thesis
statement that you came up with the introduction paragraph. In other words the points brought up in the introduction paragraph should be looked at in more detail
throughout the body of the paper and should all reflect your thesis.
Do not just give a description of what the film is about or give plot description. this is an analytical essay.

MIRI’s mission is to ensure that the creation of smarter-than-human intelligence has a positive impact. We aim to make advanced intelligent machines behave as we
intend even in the absence of immediate human supervision.

Artificial intelligence (AI) research is now progressing rapidly. Recent landmarks such as self-driving cars, a computer winning at Jeopardy!, and the digital personal
assistants Siri, Google Now and Cortana are merely symptoms of an IT arms race fueled by unprecedented investments and building on an increasingly mature theoretical
foundation. Such achievements will probably pale against what the coming decades will bring.
The potential benefits are huge; everything that civilization has to offer is a product of human intelligence; we cannot predict what we might achieve when this
intelligence is magnified by the tools AI may provide, but the eradication of war, disease, and poverty would be high on anyone’s list. Success in creating AI would be
the biggest event in human history.
Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks. In the near term, for example, world militaries are considering autonomous weapon
systems that can choose and eliminate their own targets; the UN and Human Rights Watch have advocated a treaty banning such weapons. In the medium term, as emphasized
by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee in The Second Machine Age, AI may transform our economy to bring both great wealth and great dislocation
Looking further ahead, there are no fundamental limits to what can be achieved: there is no physical law precluding particles from being organized in ways that perform
even more advanced computations than the arrangements of particles in human brains. An explosive transition is possible, although it may play out differently than in
the movie: as Irving Good realized in 1965, machines with superhuman intelligence could repeatedly improve their design even further, triggering what Vernor Vinge
called a “singularity” and Johnny Depp’s movie character calls “transcendence.” One can imagine such technology outsmarting financial markets, out-inventing human
researchers, out-manipulating human leaders, and developing weapons we cannot even understand. Whereas the short-term impact of AI depends on who controls it, the
long-term impact depends on whether it can be controlled at all.
So, facing possible futures of incalculable benefits and risks, the experts are surely doing everything possible to ensure the best outcome, right? Wrong. If a
superior alien civilization sent us a text message saying, “We’ll arrive in a few decades,” would we just reply, “OK, call us when you get here — we’ll leave the
lights on”? Probably not — but this is more or less what is happening with AI. Although we are facing potentially the best or worst thing ever to happen to humanity,
little serious research is devoted to these issues outside small non-profit institutes such as the Cambridge Center for Existential Risk, the Future of Humanity
Institute, the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, and the Future of Life Institute. All of us — not only scientists, industrialists and generals — should ask
ourselves what can we do now to improve the chances of reaping the benefits and avoiding the risks.
