Kurosawa, an AI-based tool for automatic script generation, will be designed and developed by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay in collaboration with Eros Investments. According to the institute, the Akira Kurosawa Institute is a groundbreaking attempt to empower the entertainment industry with cutting-edge technology to generate a full-length feature film script.

Software to help filmmakers

According to Eros, the software will help filmmakers develop movie plots and scripts, and IIT Bombay will also create a whitepaper on Kurosawa for academic and research purposes. It will assist in identifying the appropriate genre, output logline, and synopsis, and will deliver a potentially hit script that can be further customised as needed.

According to IIT Bombay, Kurosawa can currently create genre-specific movie plots based on genre(s) and a short 2-3 sentence prompt. Based on a brief description, it can also generate scenes in standard screenplay format. It went on to say that the machine can learn plot and scene generation from pre-existing data with minimal human intervention.

Kurosawa built on cutting-edge deep learning

Kurosawa is built on cutting-edge deep learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies. It is led by Prof Pushpak Bhattacharyya, a computer science and engineering professor at IIT Bombay.
Commenting on the occasion, Swaneet Singh, Director, Eros Investments said, “This association between Eros Investments and IIT Bombay is an excellent example of the amalgamation of the left and right brain. Kurosawa is a pioneering and cutting-edge technology that will revolutionize the entertainment sector. The tool will enable scriptwriters to focus on creativity and quality while doing the groundwork for them. This innovation marks a new milestone for Eros Investments that will be used as a case study in the future."

Dean of Research and Development IIT Bombay, Prof. Milind Atrey, added, “Kurosawa will be a huge opportunity to transform the art of storytelling with proficiency and improve efficiency for content creators. 

We welcome collaboration with Eros investments, led by Prof. Pushpak Bhattacharyya from IIT Bombay, to provide automation to the process of scripting in the entertainment industry. As the outcome of the research, IIT Bombay will also be jointly launching a white paper on Kurosawa that will be used for academic and research purposes, further supporting the upcoming generation looking to make a mark in the industry."
