Popular actor Johnny Depp is set to play a supercomputer in an upcoming film called Transcendence.

Based on a story by Jack Paglen, the movie will have Depp playing a scientist who transfers his consciousness into a supercomputer with the hope of “creating the world’s first machine that can think for itself.” In addition to the singularity, producer Andrew Kosove says that the project will also involve ideas regarding nanotechnology and artificial intelligence.

In case you missed it, I wrote a sci-fi story a while back called The Three Magi of Katrina about a self-aware computer who keynotes the SC30 conference.
