Two actors on set

You saw the movie when you were nine years old, but you know it showed a young boy alone at sea adrift on a raft. You just cannot remember the name of it for the life of you, and you really want to find it. You’ve mentioned it to several people, but nobody’s heard of it, or maybe they vaguely remember the plot but can’t help you with the name. Now there’s an AI that might help. You can search its video database to find that illusive movie by typing in specific objects.

On the other hand, if you’re a movie maker and you want to have your videos indexed by this company, you can sign up to send your videos through their analyzer for free, at least for now. Then your movies would pop up as people search the site.

This augmented reality (AR) company uses deep learning to pull Uma Thurman and John Travolta from Pulp Fiction and project 3D versions of them into a living room (see video below). While we think this tech’s current form has a lot of glitches to work through before it’s flawless, it’s still brilliant, and it gives us a unique view into our possible future: one day you’ll be able to have anybody from a video hanging out in your living room in 3D.
