In a near future, a woman navigates a virtual customer service call via her own avatar and digital assistant.
This film was written and directed by a human, however, LEXI's dialogue was generated by RivetAI, an artificial intelligence program.
From the producers of 2016's "A.I. scripted" viral short film, SUNSPRING: youtu.be/LY7x2Ihqjmc
PROGRESS BAR is an experiment that attempts to guide the absurdity of dialogue generated by A.I. (as seen in SUNSPRING) into a more traditional (human-written) narrative film structure.
