IBM Watson Video Enrichment

If IBM misses the mark it’s only because they’re focusing on video after its been edited. The real power of Watson is going to be unlocked when it’s able to “watch” and “listen” to the raw footage. Reality tv confessionals are just ripe for this technology.

IBM Creates First Movie Trailer by AI

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.
