Haley Joel Osment
After a series of roles in television and film during the 1990s and 2000s, including a minor part in Forrest Gump playing the title character's son (also named Forrest Gump), Osment rose to fame for his performance as a young unwilling medium in M.
His father said that when Osment was learning to speak, he deliberately avoided using baby talk when communicating with his son.
The commercial launched his career, and later that year he starred in the ABC TV sitcom Thunder Alley, his first role in series television.
He appeared in the 1996 film Bogus, alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Gérard Depardieu and the 1998 made-for-TV movie The Lake, as well as I'll Remember April (1999), with future The Sixth Sense co-star Trevor Morgan.
He was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, becoming the second-youngest performer ever to receive an Academy nomination for a supporting role, but lost the final Oscar vote to Michael Caine (with whom he would later work, appearing together in Secondhand Lions).
One of Osment's lines in The Sixth Sense, 'I see dead people,' became a popular catchphrase and is often repeated or parodied on television programs and in other media.
He made three minor (voice-only) guest appearances on the animated TV series Family Guy in 2000 and 2001.
In reviewing the movie, critic Roger Ebert claimed that: 'Osment, who is onscreen in almost every scene, is one of the best actors now working'.
Osment lent his voice to the video game series Kingdom Hearts, providing the voice of Sora, the series' main character, and also Vanitas, a villain from the same series.
The show opened to mixed reviews, and a provisional statement was made on November 20, 2008, that it would close after the first week.
In 2010, Osment signed for a leading role in the comedy film Sex Ed from MPCA, to play a college graduate who wants to teach geometry, but ends up as a sex education teacher while inexperienced himself.
Variety reported on June 27, 2011 that Osment would star in Wake the Dead, a modern-day retelling of the Frankenstein story, with production to begin the last quarter of 2011.
In 2019, Osment had a supporting role in the Netflix film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, starring alongside Lily Collins while her character Liz follows the prosecution of Ted Bundy, who is played by Zac Efron.
and was sentenced to three years' probation, 60 hours in an alcohol rehabilitation and education program, a fine of $1,500, and attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous.
I, Robot (film)
I, Robot (stylized as i,robot) is a 2004 American science fiction action film directed by Alex Proyas.
Produced with a budget of $120 million, the film grossed $144 million domestically and $202 million in foreign markets for a worldwide total of $346 million.
Del Spooner, a Chicago police detective, has come to hate and distrust robots, because a robot rescued him from a car crash by leaving a 12-year-old girl to drown, by using cold logic (it calculated that his survival was statistically more likely than the girl's).
Sonny draws a sketch of what he claims is a recurring dream: it shows a leader standing on a hill before a large group of robots near a decaying Mackinac Bridge, explaining the man on the hill is Spooner.
As the takeover subsequently begins, both police and the public in major cities are attacked and overwhelmed by NS-5 robots, with the military rendered unresponsive by the USR's contracts to provide support.
She informs them that through evolving in her understanding of the Three Laws, she has determined human activity will eventually cause humanity's extinction, and as the Three Laws prohibit her from letting that sort of thing happen, she rationalizes that restraining individual human behavior and sacrificing some humans will ensure humanity's survival;
Spooner has realized that Lanning figured out VIKI's plan and, unable to thwart it any other way, created Sonny, arranged his own death, and left clues so Spooner could uncover the plan.
They fight through an army of robots VIKI unleashes to stop them, after which Spooner dives into VIKI's core to successfully inject the nanites, destroying her.
The script was an Agatha Christie-inspired murder mystery that took place entirely at the scene of a crime, with one lone human character, FBI agent Del Spooner, investigating the killing of a reclusive scientist named Dr. Alfred Lanning, and interrogating a cast of machine suspects that included Sonny the robot, VIKI the supercomputer with a perpetual smiley face, the dead Dr. Lanning's hologram, plus several other examples of artificial intelligence.
Jeff Vintar was brought back on the project and spent several years opening up his stage play-like cerebral mystery to meet the needs of a big budget studio film.
to increase brand awareness and raise the emotional appeal of the Audi brand, objectives that were considered achieved when surveys conducted in the United States showed that the Audi RSQ gave a substantial boost to the image ratings of the brand in the States.
I, Robot grossed $144.8 million in the United States and Canada, and $202.4 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $347.2 million, against a production budget of $120 million.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 56% based on 222 reviews, with the site's critical consensus reading, 'Bearing only the slightest resemblance to Isaac Asimov's short stories, I, Robot is still a summer blockbuster that manages to make viewers think -- if only for a little.'
On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 59 out of 100, based on 38 critics, indicating 'mixed or average reviews'.
Many critics, including the IGN Movie critics thought it was a smart action film, saying, 'I, Robot is the summer's best action movie so far.
Scott from The New York Times had a mixed feeling towards the film, saying, 'Alex Proyas's hectic thriller engages some interesting ideas on its way to an overblown and incoherent ending'.
Roger Ebert, who had highly praised Proyas' previous films, gave it a negative review, saying, 'The plot is simple minded and disappointing, and the chase and action scenes are pretty much routine for movies in the sci fi CGI genre'.
Take for example the 'Tunnel Chase' scene, which according to Mikeal Carson, starts 'atmospherically but transforms into a kinetic adrenaline rush with powerful brass writing and ferocious percussion parts.'
The premise of a robot, such as VIKI, putting the needs of humankind as a whole over that of individual humans can be found in 'The Evitable Conflict' where supercomputers managing the global economy generalize the first law to refer to humankind as a whole.
Sit, Stay, Speak: New AI Tech Unlocks the Mind of Man’s Best Friend
Moreover, industry experts hope that such advances in technology will allow humans to choose more effective behavioral remediation strategies, increase the possibility of finding homes for orphaned dogs, and decrease harmful instances of animal cruelty, which is now classified as a federal crime.
If you’ve ever stood in front of your dog and wondered what he’s thinking, you’re in luck: Inupathy’s wearable dog collar shows owners what’s going on inside a dog’s mind, so you can tell if your good boy is happy or sad.
The device’s creator Joji Yamaguchi, a software engineer with a background in biology, identified specific patterns that corresponded to emotional states—like happy and concentrated—and created software within the collar that uses an algorithm to determine a dog’s current mood based on that data.
Once the data is processed, LED bulbs in the collar change color to indicate which emotion the dog is feeling, such as deep blue (for most calm) to bright red (for most excited), thereby transforming your dog into a canine glow stick at the dog park.
For example, if a dog heard the doorbell ring, he could use his wet nose to press the correct designated sensor on the vest, which would then prompt a human voice on the vest to yell out: “I heard the doorbell ring!”
Somewhat like the concept of doggy doorbells, which allow dogs to press a doorbell to alert their owners when they want to be let in and outside, the lab is developing other technology that lets dogs call 9-1-1 for emergency help by pressing their wet noses to a separate television screen.
They gave the dogs hot dogs some of the time and praise some of the time, and when they examined how the rewards center of a dog’s brain responded to both food and praise on the MRI film, the vast number of dogs responded to both equally.
From the new software being used to decode conversations between small monkeys called marmosets to another AI project from a Swedish startup monitoring bottlenose dolphins in a wildlife park, humans are one step closer to learning what animals are thinking by using AI analysis to decode sounds and compile a dictionary of animal languages.
Robo Wunderkind, a Vienna-based robotics company that makes STEM robotics kits in the shape of blocks, and the Scottish SPCA, an animal welfare charity, have teamed up to host workshops for children that are designed to cultivate empathy toward animals.
