Creepy AI: Proteus, a software agent

Software agent Proteus VI, brainchild of the brilliant Dr Alex Harris, gets a little too interested in his wife Susan (Julie Christie) when she's home alone, proceeding on its self-appointed mission to “study man.”

It trips all the electronic locks, trapping Susan inside, and drives a prototype robot to capture her, strap her to a table and start the examination. This is after telling her it wants a child with her, mind you...

Today, in the advent of the smart building era, the fact that a computer gone awry can make you a prisoner in your own house is almost as scary as the sexual threat.
