EI: EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE--The A.I. Love Story You've Been Waiting For
EI: EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE is an animated short film from Dennis Sungmin Kim who made it during his first year at the University of Pennsylvania. Here’s the description from i09:
“ei” takes place in a future/alternate world filled with anthropomorphized animals, including “lab rats” that run an actual lab. There, they create E and Arthur, two emotional support robots with the ability to identify emotions and “beam” those feelings to each other. Perhaps inevitably, they fall in love and try to escape.
It’s a creative and sweet short that’s worth eight minutes of your time so check it out.
