Premium Sci-Fi magazine and podcast platform The Companion will host the Virtual Premiere and Q&A of Stargate A.I. on the 6th of November 2021.
Stargate SG-1, Atlantis and Universe Co-Creator Brad Wright and premium Sci-Fi platform The Companion is bringing together a world-class AI and original cast members from Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis for an innovative table read. Alongside Wright, the event will be co-hosted by veteran actor and Stargate superfan Marc Evan Johnson (The Good Place, Brooklyn Nine-Nine).
Although the visionary showrunner Brad Wright is co-producing the project, every line of dialogue and every single stage direction the cast will be performing has been written by cutting edge artificial intelligence, created by Google’s AI Lead, Laurence Moroney.
While artificial intelligence has written scripts before, Moroney has taken a new approach for the project by creating a cluster of multiple models, with each model dedicated to accurately reflecting one character only. Each model has millions of inputs on the character’s dialogue and actions, which affects how the models speak, react and interact with one another as Stargate characters – resulting in both authentic and quirky scenarios!
Fans of the beloved series can watch as the characters come to life once again in this world exclusive premiere:
- Michael Shanks returns as Daniel Jackson
- Amanda Tapping returns as Samantha Carter
- David Hewlett returns as Rodney McKay
- Jewel Staite returns as Jennifer Keller
Brad Wright and Marc Evan Jackson will co-host the event with Laurence Moroney adding technical commentary alongside the cast read through.
