'AI Love You' on Netflix: 5 things to know about the Thai sci-fi romance
The 21st century belongs to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it can be used to make our lives easier. We have seen a lot of movies based on the subject of artificial intelligence in recent times. However, most of these movies are intense and show AI in a bad light. But Netflix doesn’t seem to be doing that and is giving this sub-genre a chance to rejuvenate.
Titled ‘AI Love You’, the Thai movie tells the story of an AI building powered by human feelings. While getting updated, the software faces some problem and the AI falls in love with a real girl. The AI escapes the building and goes into the body of a real man so that he could be with the woman it loves. Will it able to win her affection? We’ll find this when ‘AI Love You’ releases on Netflix.
The upcoming movie has an interesting premise and will be a great addition to the platform’s catalog that consists of massive projects like ‘Black Mirror’, ‘Altered Carbon’, and ‘Love, Death, and Robots’. The makers of ‘AI Love You’ will be hoping for a similar kind of reaction as well.
