Ella & Friends: Naturally Smarter than AI

Ella ja kaverit tekoälyä terävämpinä

The naturally smarter children must rise against the artificially enhanced teaching methods…

The principal asks the children’s technophobic Teacher to make better use of technology when teaching. Ella and friends are at hand to help their helpless teacher and introduce him to artificial intelligence. At first their Teacher is horrified but then falls in love with it.

Soon the children realize that the AI has taken over not just their Teacher but the whole school. There are many ways to be intelligent, and now the children must outsmart the AI with their natural wit.
