Morgan | IBM Creates First Movie Trailer by AI 
Scientists at IBM Research have collaborated with 20th Century Fox to create the first-ever cognitive movie trailer for the movie Morgan. 

Utilizing experimental Watson APIs and machine learning techniques, the IBM Research system analyzed hundreds of horror/thriller movie trailers. After learning what keeps audiences on the edge of their seats, the AI system suggested the top 10 best candidate moments for a trailer from the movie Morgan, which an IBM filmmaker then edited and arranged together.

DuoSkin:Functional, stylish on-skin user interfaces


DuoSkin is a fabrication process that enables anyone to create customized
functional devices that can be attached directly on their skin. Using gold metal leaf, a
material that is cheap, skin-friendly, and robust for everyday
wear, we demonstrate three types of on-skin interfaces: sensing touch
input, displaying output, and wireless communication. DuoSkin draws from
the aesthetics found in metallic jewelry-like temporary tattoos to create
on-skin devices which resemble jewelry. DuoSkin devices enable users to
control their mobile devices, display information, and store information on
their skin while serving as a statement of personal style. We believe that in the
future, on-skin electronics will no longer be black-boxed and mystified; instead,
they will converge towards the user friendliness, extensibility, and
aesthetics of body decorations, forming a DuoSkin integrated to the extent that
it has seemingly disappeared.
