Factual error: The solar panels (or mirrors) are facing away from the sun. The sun's position can be estimated from ground shadows and object highlights and the panels are facing in completely the wrong direction. (01:11:40)

Character mistake: The doctor diagnosing Will's illness tells Evelyn and Max that it's caused by "an isotope called polonium." Polonium is a chemical element, not an isotope. The word "isotope" refers to a form of an element (such as carbon-12 or carbon-14) not the element itself. It does not mean "radioactive substance", because many isotopes are stable. A doctor would know this. (00:17:00)

Factual error: When Evelyn tries to get the AI on the internet using a network cable, she inserts it into a patch port. Patch ports lead to network outlets, and there might be no device on the other end of the port. It would have made more sense to insert the cable into a networking switch, instead. (00:43:34 - 00:44:08)

Audience Member: So you want to create a god? Your own god?
Will: That's a very good question. Isn't that what man has always done?
