TranscendenceA scientist's drive for artificial intelligence, takes on dangerous implications when his consciousness is uploaded into one such program.

Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed-to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can...but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.

At The Gate

Paintings by Georgeanne Jud
Jud Exhibit at the Marion Herrick Room Gallery, Wendell Free Library
Illustration: At the Gate
The Wendell Library is pleased to present “At the Gate”, the first one-person exhibition of paintings by Georgeanne Jud of Lawton, Pennsylvania. Twelve medium size paintings, six watercolors and seven oils, fill the gallery space with swirling, bright colors. The bold energy of the work is palpable. The title of the show refers to the artist entering her seventh decade, but the energy expressed here suggests one much, much younger.
