IBM Watson cuts trailer for Morgan

Terry Curren pointed me to this example where IBM Watson (one of the Smart APIs I referred to a couple of weeks back) was tasked with determining whether or not an Artificial Intelligence could “cut” a movie trailer. This is the result, with a very interesting insight into how they did it at the end.

IBM Watson pulled the selects based on action and emotion, but an editor created the trailer from the selects. Still, being able to locate the highlights and determine emotion is a big step forward.

  1. A+ for a clever bit of marketing that will directly appeal to the target audience for the movie, but “creates” is a bit of a stretch!

    1. True. Creates is a stretch, but keep in mind we had the exact opposite with First Cuts – manually entered metadata, automatic story building.
