The title is a little misleading, but this is a good example of how machine learning is going to revolutionize post production:
Utilizing experimental Watson APIs and machine learning techniques, the IBM Research system analyzed hundreds of horror/thriller movie trailers. After learning what keeps audiences on the edge of their seats, the AI system suggested the top 10 best candidate moments for a trailer from the movie Morgan, which an IBM filmmaker then edited and arranged together.
As I pointed out in a previous post; IBM has created a potential replacement for the Assistant Editor. It doesn’t need to be perfect, it just needs to be good enough, and cheaper than $1922.80/week.
