Save Countless Hours on AI-Driven Video Editing

One of the main reasons that video hasn't played a more significant role in the digital landscape is that it can be incredibly time consuming to not only produce, but also to edit.

Fortunately, technology (and artificial intelligence specifically) is coming to the digital rescue.

Researchers from Stanford and Adobe have recently developed an artificial intelligence (AI) program that partially automates the editing process (the dialogue in particular) without totally eliminating creative control.

The solution reportedly organizes the footage (all of the different "takes" and camera angles) and essentially matches them up to available lines of dialogue by using facial recognition and emotion recognition as well as other computational imaging effects in order to determine what works best in each frame.

The study was conducted by Stanford University and Adobe Research and is included in the July issue of the ACM Transactions on Graphics Journal.
