Your Digital Self: Will artificial intelligence deliver an android that works as your personal assistant?

Meet Walter.

I’m a huge fan of the original “Alien” franchise, largely because of Sigourney Weaver’s performance and the crucial part technology plays in its lore.

Not only does this tech allow humans to traverse immense distances to reach alien-infested worlds, but it provides them with androids: perfect robotic assistants so advanced that it’s extremely difficult to distinguish them from human crew. In fact, they’re superior to their human companions in many aspects, from their superhuman strength to their refined motor skills.

As a part of promoting the upcoming sci-fi horror film “Alien: Covenant,” (in theaters May 19), 21st Century Fox unit FOX, +1.34% Twentieth Century Fox released its branded short film “Meet Walter,” starring Michael Fassbender.
