“Neuroscience x AI x Future of Short Films” The new potential of visual images made possible by cutting-edge technology.
This year, in conjunction with the festival theme “Meta Cinema: Transcend, Discover, Begin,” we will explore the new filmmaking possibilities offered by cutting-edge technology. The first part of the festival will be “Film Evaluation by Neuroscience: Analysis of Film Works Using Biometric Data. Biometric data such as brain waves and eyesight during the viewing of short films will be comprehensively analyzed and utilized for creative purposes. The possibility of using such data will be discussed. The second part will be “Story Generation AI – About Screenplays Generated by Artificial Intelligence.” Researchers will explain how AI technology can support screenplay creation. Instead of a single story idea, AI suggests several patterns, etc. The goal is to create a good environment and script (story construction) for screenwriters in an efficient way, rather than taking away from the screenwriter’s human generated creativity. He will also talk about the future vision that AI will bring to the film industry.
