Movies are one of the things that people use to spend their time during the pandemic, whether it is a new film or just one of the all-time-favorites.
Films are created by experts in a production company, such as Pixar, Walt Disney, and Dream Works. These film producers are well known across the globe, thanks to their high-quality movie outputs.
However, would you watch a movie if you know it was made by artificial intelligence (AI)? IMINT, a Swedish company, is currently working on one.
According to Forbes' latest report, the AI's creator wants to take advantage of how thousands of people are taking videos and pictures with their smartphones, with each of them capturing a moment of reality.
What's great about these is that most of them try their best to get the perfect angle from their perspective.
IMINT enhances videos from 250 million smartphones
As of the moment, IMINT is still working on its new AI. It is enhancing, correcting, and improving videos in more than 250 million smartphones. Right now, the company is hands-on with a consumer-faing software release.
"I can be at some event with my wife and kids, and when I get home, it's like I really want to combine my videos because someone else got a better angle at something," said Johan Svensson, IMINT's CTO, as reported by Forbes.
"But I never get to the point where I actually upload all this to my computer and I start my editing software and do that," he added.
How IMINT's new AI works
IMINT explained that the new AI is a cloud-based technology that captures video from a group of smartphones. It also checks sensor resolution, actual resolution, direction, motion, GPS positioning, and other metadata.
The company added that the new tech will use algorithms to find the videos' best highlights and moments. Once the footages are carefully selected, the new AI will compile it into a movie.
Although artificial intelligence is promising, there would be some people that will be creeped out. TechXplore explained that AIs and robots are usually depicted in many films.
And sometimes, they are described to have human-like qualities, which could make you feel uncomfortable or unsettled. If you've watched "Black Mirror" or "Terminator," you'll have an idea of how they can turn against humans.
The question is, would you allow this AI to get a hold of your personal videos? That's for you to think about.
