Is Artificial Intelligence Any Good at Writing Screenplays?1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
For the past several months, me and my creative partner, Jacob Vaus, have been exploring the intersection of A.I. and human creativity. In a series of videos, we’ve focused on testing the A.I.’s ability to pick up on existing works and continue them with newly generated material.
Already we’ve created a new song from the musical Hamilton, an Eminem diss track on Mark Zuckerberg, and even tried baking cookies. More recently, we had A.I. write a short film and craft a new Dr. Seuss novel.
For our tests, we use OpenAI’s GPT-3, an API that provides a general-purpose “text in-text out” interface. Meaning, you can input any English text, and it will create the task. For one of our more recent experiments, we inputted “The following is a new scene from the film Lady Bird” into the web-based program, and it generated a script for us.
