Watch: IBM’s Watson Created a Super Creepy Movie Trailer All By Itself
IBM’s contrived rumor strengthhouse Watson can now add “cinematic genius” to its essential recommence.
For its aftercited suspense/detestation movie, , 20th Century Fox looked to IBM’s Watson to fashion one of its movie trailers. The movie is environing an contrivedly enhanced civilized who gets herself into a lot of sorrow.
An AI creating a movie trailer for a movie environing an AI-infused civilized. So meta. The end is 100 percent creepy urbanity. See for yourself overhead.
To do this, IBM researchers enabled Watson to irritate the trailers of 100 detestation movies, looking at the visuals, the audio (such as the character’s effect of suffrage and the melodious jaw), and each scene’s compromise (such the location of the shot, the metaphor framing and the lighting).
Then, Watson “watched” Morgan and chosen 10 scenes its algorithms “believed” would execute for the impeccable trailer -- a entirety of six minutes of footage. IBM worked delay a civilized filmmaker to splice the scenes unitedly and voila, a movie trailer is contrivedly born!
Morgan hits theaters September 2. As of this letter, the Watson-generated trailer has 800,000+ views .
“There are patterns and types of emotions in detestation movies that resonate unequally delay each viewer, and the intricacies and interrelation of these are what an AI scheme would enjoy to demonstrate and recognize in adimpartial to fashion a compelling movie trailer,” John R. Smith, IBM Fellow and overseer of multimedia and vision said in a post . “Our team was faced delay the defy of not barely instruction a scheme to recognize, ‘what is scary’, but then to fashion a trailer that would be considered ‘frightening and suspenseful’ by a preponderance of viewers.
The oral course of sorting through movie footage and creating a movie trailer can siege anywhere betwixt 10 and 30 days to finished, Smith said. Delay Watson at the trundle-wallow, this trailer was whipped up in impartial environing 24 hours. “That is the gentleman strength of AI,” he said.
For me, what “made” the trailer was how those suspenseful movie scenes were paired delay creeeeeeepy sounds and hush. While Watson prime the scenes, IBM’s filmmaker chose the jaw.
Score one for Watson. Jaw one for civilizeds, too.
