Artificial Intelligence Authors An Original Screenplay

[index] [391 page views]

The Infinite Monkey Theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare. What happens if that monkey is an artificial intelligence trained over a series of screenplays? Benjamin, as it apparently named itself, did not produce Shakespeare but did generate its own screenplay titled Sunspring. It happened to make it into the top ten finalists at the London Sci-Fi contest amongst thousands of entries. The AI was based on what is called a Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) recurrent neural network designed for text recognition. Sunspring is available as a 10 minute short film on ArsTechnica.
