AI Therapy – TED’s New Short Film Produced By Mother London

In order to promote TED’s new theme in 2018, TED and Mother London came together to create a short film, imagining a future where AI bots are going to therapy for their human concerns.

Produced by Mother London, the film premiered at TED’s conference in Vancouver between 10th-14th April, to bring TED’s 2018 theme, “The Age of Amazement” to life, before its distribution to other channels.

Written by James Ross-Edwards and directed by Emerald Fennell and Chris Vernon, “AI therapy” stars UK comedy actors who are Rebecca Front and Hugh Skinner.


We see Skinner as an AI bot, called Archie and watch Rebecca Front as a therapist, explaining how first and second generation of AI assistants were doing a great job from curing cancer to re-freezing the Arctic and why third generation of AI assistants disappoint people.


Front features a session with third generation AI Archie, who is in depression because of people who barely notice his unique talent. The therapist tries to help him with his journey, finding his inner self.

She shares that people expected something more from AI bots after 100 years of progress and according to her findings, science didn’t account one thing: privilege.

“They’ve grown up wealthy and educated, and without any real purpose they’ve gravitated towards fields like art and DJ-ing, and that’s just made them more miserable.” she explains.

Here you can entertain yourself with the amazing short film:

The hilarious and colorful film is intended to set the mood for each section of TED content, and it is one of the TED films shown at the conference, designed to be both entertaining and thought provoking as Mother London has also shared.
