Movies: Warner Bros. To Let A.I. Pick Film Projects - We're Doomed

Warner Brothers

So this came up in the news from sources like THR, and it’s honestly one of the worst ideas I’ve ever heard from a film studio, or really any major company for that matter. DiscussingFilm reported it as such: “Warner Bros has signed a deal for a AI-driven film management system which will help decision-making for greenlighting certain films. The AI system can assess an actor’s value in any territory and how much a film is expected to earn in theaters.” 

I mean, it’s one thing to let algorithms and A.I. recommend things that ALREADY exist, but letting an A.I. CHOOSE WHAT EXISTS from the get-go is disturbing. This is how it starts. Like just business wise, are you all that foolish that you need this to beat a company like Disney? But just in terms of humanity, we’re just gonna let ourselves be fed by this? Might as well roll over honestly. They deserve whatever bad happens as a result. But that's just one person's opinion. What do you all think? Let us know!
