Computational branding: Hollywood’s DARPA and the math behind telling a better story
Join Kinestry and Corto as we unveil Hollywood’s most secret and cutting-edge AI research on the science of stories – from the Think Tank that the studios have been turning to take their storytelling game to the next level.
