Artificial Intelligence: AI (spelled A.I. Artificial Intelligence on posters and merchandising materials) is a sci-fi film based on the short story Supertoys Last All Summer Long, by Brian Aldiss.

David is a "mecha" or robot of the future, at a time when the polar ice caps have melted and submerged many coastal cities, causing worldwide starvation and human dependence upon robotic assistance.

The first mecha designed to experience love, David is the "son" of Henry, an employee of the company that built the boy, and the grief-stricken Monica.

David is meant to replace the couple's hopelessly comatose son, but when their natural child recovers, David is abandoned and sets out to become "a real boy" worthy of his mother's affection.

Along the way, David is mentored by a pleasure-providing mecha named Gigolo Joe and a talking "super toy" bear named Teddy.

His adventures take him to the Roman Circus-style "Flesh Fair," where mechas are destroyed for the amusement of humans; Rouge City, where Gigolo Joe narrowly avoids capture by police; and finally a submerged New York City, where David's creator, Professor Hobby reveals the secrets of the boy's creation.

Tagline: David is 11 years old. He weighs 60 pounds. He is 4 feet, 6 inches tall. He has brown hair. His love is real. But he is not.
