After losing his captcha, a tone deaf scientist must prove himself human in a music duel, or slave his life in an AI camp
The movie plot: it seems hazy and confusing.
In an AI driven world, a scientist is asked to compete in a music duel to prove himself being a human.
This does not seem clear. If your character is a scientist then he must end up justifying his prowess over technology. A scientist is always a known person in his workplace. Having trouble to prove himself as human is hardly any plot for your scientist character. Not only that you made your character tone-deaf. Double drop.
Why scientist, why not a worker. E.g., a depressed, exiled worker who has been working in the AI camp, without any identity, is asked to prove himself a human. This can make sense. Now the plot – of proving himself in a music duel is hard to pull. But this can be good if the particular AI section was a musical manufacturing unit and the said genre was drama/comedy.
Based on your comments: Your plot is based upon an assumption that the AI cannot compose music like humans. What if you create a conflict where the character is not being taken seriously of him being a human. While your character roams around the labor camp, for week, trying to get attention or someone listen to his plea, he hears a musical competition which can attract attention of higher officials and get him out of there. So he decides to participate in the concert. He needs to train himself for music, during which he gets fascinated by the amount of intelligence a music requires. He enjoys it so much that he decides to actually compete in the music duel. He makes it his obsession that only if his music is loved, he shall contact the higher officials or else he may not, and remain among the laborers.
The scientist, the captcha and AI campus are a lot confusing to fit in a musical plot. Good luck for going forward with this.
>>>slave his life in an AI camp
Your protag could be one of the many scientists monitoring this AI labour camp
I agree. if the AI are replicant sorts, proving himself better musician than a clone is an interesting turing test…
All the best variable!
In a world where Humans and cyborgs are ranked by their artistic ability, a tone deaf scientist must win a music competition in order to avoid a life of servitude.
as the settings is rather unusual, it is necessary to details so the music duel and its consequence do not appears incongruous.
Also, I think failing a captcha sound better than losing a captcha. Like in Blade Runner, replicants fail the test for humanity.
When he fails a captcha test, a tone deaf scientist must win a music duel in order to prove he is human and avoid being send to a cyborg and AI camp.
I think, if you go ahead with this project, it would be good to get a consultant in. An expert on current AI with a good prognosis of how they’ll work in the future. With my limited understanding of this kind of science, I wouls assume, what they need to measure, is comprehension beyond what a machine can understand and in fact being flawed. A non artificial or purely randomized pattern of flawdness so to speak. Also, may, the ability to create something that a human can appreciate as harmonious better than an AI… which i where his tone deafness would make things interesting. (I’m better at getting characters into trouble than out lol)
Just wondering, is the AI in your world self-conscious? Would that be a game changer? Maybe an additional inner-journey or even deciding to free all those artificial “people”?
