Walt Disney Studios to Use AI Tech to Screen Scripts for ‘Gender Bias’

Want to write a screenplay and let your imagination run wild?  Tough luck.  You’ll have to comply with the mandates of gender bias fascists instead.

 

Recently I wrote about Geena Davis’ ridiculous youth indoctrination organization, which programs misandry into young minds.  Well, now she’s going to be policing Disney screenplays for the non-problem of “gender bias.”

 

Geena Davis before “gender bias” claptrap.

 

The Hollywood Reporter writes:

 

Geena Davis Unveils Partnership With Disney to “Spellcheck” Scripts for Gender Bias

During a closing keynote speech at the New Zealand Power of Inclusion Summit, the actress explained how a new digital tool will prevent film and television works from perpetuating underrepresentation and stereotypes — and their pernicious real-world effects.

Central to Davis’ presentation was the revelation that her Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media has partnered with Walt Disney Studios to deploy a new digital tool that uses AI technology to assess film and television scripts for gender bias.

Named “GD-IQ: Spellcheck for Bias,” the new tool leverages patented machine learning technology developed at the University of Southern California to rapidly analyze the text of a script to determine its number of male and female characters and whether they are representative of the real population at large. The technology also can discern the numbers of characters who are people of color, LGBTQI, possess disabilities or belong to other groups typically underrepresented and failed by Hollywood storytelling.

“I’m very proud to announce we have a brand new partnership with Walt Disney Studios using Spell Check for Bias,” Davis said onstage. “They are our pilot partners and we’re going to collaborate with Disney over the next year using this tool to help their decision-making, identify opportunities to increase diversity and inclusion in the manuscripts that they receive. We’re very excited about the possibilities with this new technology and we encourage everybody to get in touch with us and give it a try.”

Along with rapidly tallying the genders and ethnicities of characters, Spellcheck for Bias can assess the number of speaking lines the various groups have, the level of sophistication of the vocabulary they use and the relative social status or positions of power assigned to the characters by group.

 

Forget Big Brother.  Say hello to Big Sister.

Can’t wait to see what GD-IQ: Spellcheck for Bias spits out for Rian Johnson’s trilogy.
