Hollywood and Artificial Intelligence seems to be two sides of one coin. Recently trailer of the movie “Morgan” was launched. Hundreds of movies are launched in Hollywood so what so special about this? The Movie Studio revealed the fact that they have used IBM Watson for the making of trailer. IBM Watson is a super computer having Artificial Intelligence. It is clear from above that Artificial Intelligence has begun to take a prominent role in Hollywood too. IBM scientists fed the memory of the super computer with some similar trailers and then the super computer created the trailer of its own. Most important part is we can use the Artificial Intelligence by giving a very little or no training to them at all. Today about 97% of Hollywood movies are filmed using Artificial Intelligence, the reason is their higher dependability and low chances of mistakes.
Following Paul Walker’s death in 2013, the Furious 7 filmmakers faced the delicate task of finishing the film using a digitally created version of the actor. Thus they took the help of Artificial Intelligence to create the digital actor acting in the film which looks so real and same as the actor himself.
Science fiction movies like Star Wars, Action movies like Fast and Furious, Superhero movie series like D.C. or Marvel featuring Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X-men, Captain America, Avengers, Green lanterns etc seems to be only an imagination without the use of Artificial Intelligence. Whether it comes to flying a spaceship or flying in the air and jumping off the high gorge, every time it’s the Artificial Intelligence who does it, who makes our imaginations a reality.
According to a survey, Artificial Intelligence can outperform humans in all kind of works in about 45 years which means we all will be left jobless. Hollywood will also be affected by this. We might come to know at that time about Hollywood actors being paid so less as they don’t have much work to do in the movies as almost everything is done by the Artificial Intelligence itself.
One of the Greatest achievements of Artificial Intelligence in Hollywood industry after a little bit more advancement is, it could generate realistic characters which might replace the real ones. Moreover, animation and editing will all be a second’s work by use of Artificial Intelligence. Shifting to Artificial Intelligence for making movies will save millions of dollars and also reduce the time consumed and errors crept in producing it.
Despite all this facts and figures, its still long time that Artificial Intelligence could take the place in script writing or be producing or directing the movies. Such a use of Artificial Intelligence as automation to save time and increase efficiency in post-production, including automated syncing and grouping of clips. Is still very reliable and comparatively cheaper to use. Still, Artificial Intelligence has to develop a lot more than what it is today. It is already helping the Hollywood industry to create stunning and blockbuster movies and also cutting their cost of production at the same time.
