Watch a Short Film Cowritten by a Robot

Watch a Short Film Cowritten by a Robot

Feb 08, 2013

As artificial intelligence continues to evolve in all sorts of freakish ways, people are coming up with odd ideas to entertain themselves before these robots inevitably become self-aware and destroy us all (thanks Terminator movies for making us forever neurotic about our future!). The website Cleverbot is a somewhat confusing online artificial intelligence that allows you to ask it questions and various other things. One guy thought it'd be fun to use Cleverbot to help him create a short film, inserting its answers into the script as he went along. 

This is the final outcome, entitled Do You Love Me? It was directed by Chris R. Wilson, who set up the short film by noting, "What follows is a movie written by a machine. I tried to talk to Cleverbot just like I would with a human writing partner. I set up scenarios and Cleverbot provided all of the dialogue content for the scene."

You can read a complete transcript of their conversation on YouTube. How long before a robot is writing the movies we watch in theaters? Some folks would probably argue that they already are.
