The Black Mirror series is known because it represents technology at its best. In this we see a futuristic world, which makes use of technologies of today’s world. Within them is artificial intelligence, biometrics, data analysis and much more. Although it does not seem, most of the events and situations presented there are very close to reality.
In several chapters they present artificial intelligence as the language of the future. ‘Hang the DJ’ is an episode in which people find their ideal partner through a mobile app. Just as artificial intelligence does, it predicts the future and what will happen to them. On the other hand, it only gives them considerable time to share together according to their tastes and aspirations as a couple. A reference to the applications that exist today.
Another memorable episode is ‘Hated in the Nation’. A successful company finds the perfect business: they create bees to pollinate, because humanity extinguished this important species. What seems like an environmental initiative becomes the terror of social networks. Although these insects have the ideal behavior of a bee, they are hacked to attack humans that generate negative comments on social networks.
Black Mirror and its technological approach
The series shows an absolutely dystopian future and dealing with manipulative effects of technology and their own personal environments.
Black Mirror and each of its episodes leave the important teaching that technology can be a useful and supportive tool. In the same way, its use must be responsible and according to the guidelines of the current world.
To say the least, it is important to stress that each episode is not far from the near future. Today, companies like Tekbees can create cutting-edge technologies to contribute to the development of human beings and their needs, but always meeting the parameters of legality, security, ethics and morality.
