SXSW Conference & Festivals, March 9-18, 2018October 16, 2017 | AUSTIN, TEXAS — StoryFit CEO Monica Landers and Lead Data Scientist Grace Lin will present “Sex & Text: Breaking Down Movie Stereotypes w/ AI”  at the 2018 South by Southwest Conference next year, as announced by the host event today.  SXSW will take place March 9-18 and will include over 700 sessions divided among 24 programming tracks.

The StoryFit session is among the Film & TV Industry sessions on the conference’s popular Film track, which presents an interesting trend for 2018.

“This seems to be a watershed moment in the conversations we’re having, both at StoryFit and in the industry at large,” said Landers. “Of the 33 Film & TV industry sessions, six are taking critical looks at sexism and diversity in the industry, including ours.”

The session will explore original text analysis performed by StoryFit technology, focusing on how gender stereotypes emerge in movie dialogue. The session was included in the official SXSW announcement as a highlighted session track.
