What I’m Reading: 22 June 2016

This article is a few weeks old, but I finally got around to reading and watching the video in its entirety during lunch today.

Buzzfeed version of the title: What happens when a filmmaker and a computer programmer get together and let an AI write a script? The results may surprise you.

I find this interesting on a number of levels, not only for the computer programming portion, but more so about what the results (i.e. script) say about the sci-fi medium. As the article points out (and what is apparent just by watching the film), so much of the dialogue centers around “I don’t know what you mean,” as so much sci-fi dialogue does in order to allow for the explanation of things to the audience. It is a mirror to our culture.
