We invited creators to reimagine their craft with Watson. Meet the Finalists and Ideas Selected.

Tribeca Film Festival and IBM invited creators to participate on a journey around augmented intelligence and creativity through Storytellers with Watson: A Competition for Innovation.

Five creators have been selected for their ideas on how augmented intelligence could help them push the boundaries of creativity and transform their craft.

These creators, a group of artists, developers and creative professionals, were carefully choosen for their ability to apply Watson to achieve new possibilities in the storytelling process, such as recreating human conversation without language barriers in VR, simplifying the script review process, making film marketing smarter, assist in dance choreography, and more.

On June 27th they'll present their final pitches to an esteemed panel of judges:

Rashmy Chatterjee, CMO of IBM North America
Rob High, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO, Watson
Paula Weinstein, Tribeca EVP, Creative and Programming
Sharon Badal, Tribeca VP, Filmmaker Relations and Shorts Programming
