A friend of mine who is a producer of games and things sent me the results of an experiment that it did. We are both fans of Gundam so he asked it to come up with an idea for a new series.
The results were impressive. It said the show would be an OVA, had a certain number of episodes. It plotted out the main characters, the moral themes, etc. I think it maybe even had episode titles.
Could this dumb bot get a producer credit on a successful Gundam series? Maybe, but is that what we even want? A series that is “successful”?
If you don’t know…the OG Gundam series was deeply unsuccessful. It was a toy advert that didn’t sell its toy, once got as low as a 0% (zero) viewer share and was cancelled early.
Obviously by the time the movie versions were edited together the fan momentum was enormous. Everyone in Japan has seen those first three movies by now. Eventually it was a success but only because the dudes running it were willing to destroy their careers for a vision nobody would want until after the show was cancelled. Can an AI do *that*? Can it see the future it wants to exist and create art that waits for its audience?
An AI is going to give us the happy ending versions of Bladerunner and Brazil and 38 Avatar sequels. Holographic Beatles reunions and Funcopop shaped bongs that are also dildos. Flush this turd ASAP.
