Made by Machine: When AI Met the Archive

Experimental TV for BBC

I was invited to join a small team of developers, engineers and producers at BBC R&D to create “the world’s first broadcast AI-TV programme”. In collaboration, we developed four computational techniques to browse the BBC television archive and automatically concatenate new sequences of clips, which were then packaged as the documentary Made by Machine: When AI Met the Archive. The programme aired in 2018 on BBC Four, it was seen by nearly half a million people in the UK and was nominated for a Broadcast Tech Innovation award.
