Artificial intelligence is making great strides in recent history. Pretty soon self driving cars will be the norm and we’ll get our packages delivered by drones. Life as we know it is changing at an alarming rate. One thing we hadn’t thought of before was using a robot to write a screen play. Until now.
A group of people, including Thomas Middleditch (the star of HBO’s Silicon Valley), used a the same type of computer that predicts your texts to create a short science-fiction screenplay. They did this by inputting scripts from other sci-fi movies and other information and let the machine go to work.
Although the end product might not win any Oscars, it is both hilarious and intense.
