Ars Technic’s Justin McElroy recently talked to the cofounder of an upcoming startup that uses a computer program to predict which movies will get made.
The startup, called Predictions, will use the machine to predict the best movies to be made based on past performances.
The Predictions team recently unveiled a demo for the robot, which can read the lyrics to a song by predicting the word “silly” and then guessing the words of the song.
Predictions says it will then be able to offer an actual movie ticket that will be available for purchase.
It will be the first time that a robot has been used to predict movies, and it could have significant ramifications for Hollywood.
As the entertainment industry becomes increasingly automated, and bots are used to do things like predict the most successful movies of the future, it’s possible that a machine like Predictions will eventually be able help predict the top movies made.
Predicts is not the first robot that uses machine learning to predict a movie, but it’s the first one to take on the job of predicting movies specifically.
Its creators have already used the robot to predict films made by several of Hollywood’s biggest names, including The Muppets, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Star Wars Rebels.
