An example is provided by Quibi, the newly announced premium service intended for a public linked to the mobile universe, already capable of gathering important collaborations between Hollywood directors and actors. A world that will also change thanks toartificial intelligence.
An AI for cinema at the service of Warner Bros.
Comes from Warner Bros. the announcement of an initiative that intends to exploit the potential of AI to make an accurate forecast of the box office receipts, estimating the fair compensation for the cast to be involved in the project and recommending the best period for the debut in the room.
