My initial reaction when I watched the AI-generated trailer of the movie "Mogan" for the first time, was "WOW". I was blown away.

I don't know if it was an intense watch because I knew in the back of my mind that AI had a part to play in the creation of it, or simply what followed the first 15 seconds of the trailer was filled with intense sentiments of suspense.

The article below explains how the IBM team trained their Watson AI to analyse and 'understand' horror movies, and from that understanding, derive which "moments" of the movie would be suitable for the trailer.

Similar to other current attempts for AI to create art and music, as posted by my colleague Eddie recently -  such as be seen in Sony's attempt at AI pop music, the efforts are still backed by human intervention -- but what gets me most is what AI means moving forward, and how it can be used to "augment the expertise and creativity of individuals".

There was an element missing from the AI-generated trailer though which you may notice if you watch the official trailer here. But I'll let you come to the conclusion yourself which version is better.
