Many films use dark, dystopian drama to depict the bad aspects of AI. Superintelligence takes a different route, illustrating what might go wrong with artificial intelligence but in a joyful, often absurd fashion. It follows the story of Carol Peters, an everyday lady going about her daily life until one day she begins hearing voices from various devices. The very first AI, it turns out, picked her as an observation object and seized control of her life.
This is the first step towards AI ruling the planet, and Carol is the only one who can stop it and, eventually, preserve humanity. This is the film for you if you want to forget about the serious side of life.

IMDb rating: 7.7/10 Released in 2014

However, it quickly becomes apparent that the humanoid is considerably more self-aware than either man believes.
Artificial intelligence is taking over the world in every aspect of our lives, so the number of movies based on this topic is also increasing significantly. There are many movies that are included in the list above that not only show a different world but also carry a deep and meaningful message that inspires the younger generation in many ways.
