In Hollywood and elsewhere in the film production industry, script readers for film studios spend countless hours glossing screenplays to see whether they are both entertaining and profitable, and the ScriptBook algorithm is designed to make that job a relic.
While human taste is crucial when it comes to assessing anything creative, script readers spend a huge amount of time reading scripts that never have a chance at getting produced. And, as Hollywood loves to say, time is money. By automating the process of script reading, ScriptBook hopes to make the film industry more efficient.
The program can "read" hundreds of scripts in the time it takes a human to read just one. It then assigns scores for things like potential commercial success and entertainment value.
