Will GPT-3 Win Oscar When it Starts Writing Movie Scripts Big Time?

Posted by in categories: entertainment, internet, media & arts, robotics/AI

Using GPT-3, Calamity AI developed a short film script called Date Night. GPT-3 is the third generation Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a neural network ML model trained using internet data to generate any type of text. GPT-3 has been used to create articles, poetry, stories, news reports, and dialogue using just a small amount of input text that can be used to produce large amounts of quality content. Developed by OpenAI, it requires a small amount of input text to generate large volumes of relevant and sophisticated machine-generated text.

Enter Calamity AI, a pair of film students in California collaborating with an AI to write original short films and produce for YouTube. It aims to showcase the results of AI and humans working in tandem. The limitations of artificial intelligence restrict it from doing every element of the filmmaking process.

Here’s what happened when we let an AI write a movie script

Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

This article was originally published on Built In by the Co-founders of Calamity AI

The script starts simply enough: A couple is at the end of dinner. Conversation winds down, the wine is almost finished. After a silence, the man says he wants to play a game.

Enter artificial intelligence.

The End is Nye is streaming August 25th on Peacock: https://pck.tv/3aKJfYf.

Synopsis: The End is Nye sends Bill Nye into the most epic global disasters imaginable – both natural and unnatural – and then demystifies them using science to show how we can survive, mitigate, and even prevent them. Each stand-alone episode takes a hell-bent dive into the mystery and terror of one specific threat. Every catastrophe is abundant with thrills, but also offers hope and a way forward —a scientific blueprint for surviving anything that comes our way. The series is hosted and executive produced by Emmy Award winner and renowned science educator, engineer, author, and inventor Bill Nye. Each episode also features a brief cameo by longtime science advocate and series EP Seth MacFarlane.

An AI system trained to find an equitable policy for distributing public funds in an online game

Posted by in categories: entertainment, policy, robotics/AI

A team of researchers at DeepMind, London, working with colleagues from the University of Exeter, University College London and the University of Oxford, has trained an AI system to find a policy for equitably distributing public funds in an online game. In their paper published in the journal Nature Human Behavior, the group describes the approach they took to training their system and discuss issues that were raised in their endeavor.

How a society distributes wealth is an issue that humans have had to face for thousands of years. Nonetheless, most economists would agree that no system has yet been established in which all of its members are happy with the status quo. There have always been inequitable levels of income, with those on top the most satisfied and those on the bottom the least satisfied. In this latest effort, the researchers in England took a new approach to solving the problem—asking a computer to take a more logical approach.

The researchers began with the assumption that , despite their flaws, are thus far the most agreeable of those tried. They then enlisted the assistance of volunteers to play a simple resource allocation —the players of the game decided together the best ways to share their mutual resources. To make it more realistic, the players received different amounts of resources at the outset and there were different distribution schemes to choose from. The researchers ran the game multiple times with different groups of volunteers. They then used the data from all of the games played to train several AI systems on the ways that humans work together to find a solution to such a problem. Next, they had the AI systems play a similar game against one another, allowing for tweaking and learning over multiple iterations.

Minority Report (2002) Official Trailer #1 — Tom Cruise Sci-Fi Action Movie

Joseph DearMinority Report was a matter of policy, not AI. As long as we have the good sense to not try to prosecute for crimes they didn’t do or attempt, and instead use this for prevention, we can have the best of both worlds.

IoT can take the Metaverse game a notch up

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, entertainment

Metaverse though considered, a world under construction, has already created exciting promises. An individual can replicate his identity and even enhance them. How is it possible for a virtual world to create the exact replica of a person in zeroes and ones? There is not just one technology aiding in creating the fascinating world of Metaverse and IoT is one amongst them.

IoT connects digital devices via sensors and gadgets. It connects voice-activated speakers, medical gadgets, thermostats, and weather sensors, to data sources. Metaverse’s IoT applications collect and distribute data from the physical world to create an accurate representation of an object. A person’s replica in a Metaverse might have a unique biophysical response for example when the real person relocates to a place with different weather.

3D environments become easy and seamless to adapt in Metaverse as it connects a range of real-life devices through IoT. Making simulations within the Metaverse, particularly with digital twins becomes a lot easier making the physical and digital worlds indistinguishable all while providing a tailored interface environment for IoT. For example, with the gaming interface, elevated heart and breathing rates can trigger the individual’s avatar to make it more susceptible to replicating the person in real.

You Can Run Doom on a Chip From a $15 Ikea Smart Lamp

Posted by in categories: computing, entertainment

A $14.95 smart lamp from Ikea apparently has enough computing power to run the classic PC game Doom.

A software engineer named Nicola Wrachien removed the smart lamp’s computer chip and used it to build a miniaturized Doom gaming system. Over the weekend, he uploaded a video to YouTube, showing his creation in action.

The system runs a downsized version of Doom that requires less RAM. The chip from the Ikea lamp has enough processing power to play the game at 35 frames per second over a cheap 160-by-128-pixel display.
