At the bottom of this blog is my original film review, but here are my new thoughts after speaking with Dr. Oblivion: 

While Dr. Oblivion did provide many valuable inputs, my original review does talk about several things that align exactly with what Dr. Oblivion says. My review acknowledges the positive aspects of AI, highlighting how J.A.R.V.I.S. assists Iron Man in his various duties and contributes to his suit. Dr. Oblivion emphasizes how humans should be appreciating the benefits of AI aligns with the comments I made about J.A.R.V.I.S. and its role in enhancing Iron Man’s abilities. My review takes note of the fact that J.A.R.V.I.S. enables Iron Man to realize the full potential of what he can be as a superhero. This lines up with Dr. Oblivion’s idea that AI can empower individuals and enhance their capabilities. 

When asking Dr. Oblivion to explore the deeper themes of AI in Iron Man, he first delves into the portrayal of J.A.R.V.I.S. in the movie and how there are dangers to the development of AI. What I didn’t check in my film review, that Dr. Oblivion noted, is that the movie highlights the ethical responsibility associated with creating AI machines, showcased by J.A.R.V.I.S. as an AI assistant. This aligns with exactly what Dr. Oblivion said above that it is important to be cautious of potential AI advancements that are in theory there to “benefit society”.  

During my original film review, I talked about my personal connection to Iron Man and my appreciation for how Robert Downey Jr. plays the role. While that was certainly insightful information, nevertheless I should have added more insights to add depth to my analysis of J.A.R.V.I.S.’s significance. Specifically, I should have emphasized how the film’s portrayal of AI echoes contemporary discussion on the responsible development and use of AI.

In summary, by incorporating Dr. Oblivion’s thoughts into my writing, about the themes of Ai in the first Iron Man movie, I am therefore providing a more comprehensive analysis for the assignment. Dr. Oblivion’s insights combine technical aspects, ethical considerations, and the impact of AI on human society. 

Original Discussion Board Post:

I decided to watch the AI-related movie Iron Man. The artificial intelligence (AI) in the Iron Man film is J.A.R.V.I.S. (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System). Although I have already seen this Marvel film, it seems to get better and better every time I see it. This movie holds a particular place in my heart because I was just a kid when I first saw Iron Man with my dad and was in awe of everything that he was capable of. I think part of the reason I love Marvel so much now is because this was the first Marvel movie I ever watched! It never gets old seeing him construct his first Iron Man suit while under terrorist captivity. Needless to say, this was only the first of his several recognizable Iron Man outfits that the world has grown to love. Growing older has made me even more of an admirer of Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal of Iron Man; nobody plays the character more clever and witty than him. This particular film has a significant part in the Iron Man series and a bigger part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

As previously mentioned, J.A.R.V.I.S. is the primary artificial intelligence system utilized in Iron Man. To put it briefly, Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, developed J.A.R.V.I.S. as a tool to assist him in a variety of duties. All of the data and information that Tony Stark can observe in real time while wearing his suit is referred to as artificial intelligence. Iron Man can fly, fire weapons, and defend against attacks without the need for manual intervention thanks to the AI built into his armor. Throughout the film, it is also demonstrated that J.A.R.V.I.S. can develop from Iron Man’s experiences and change in response to feedback. Tony Stark communicates with J.A.R.V.I.S. through voice command, which is essentially AI as well. Finally, one application of AI is the way J.A.R.V.I.S. protects Tony Stark’s technologies and suit. Overall, J.A.R.V.I.S. offered a wide variety of AI throughout the film, which is particularly impressive considering that, at the time the film was released in 2008, not much of this technology was existent. The Iron Man character was able to realize his full potential as a superhero thanks to J.A.R.V.I.S.
