Kristen Stewart is quickly becoming one of my favorite people. She’s gone from Twilight to indie darling, picking some amazing films that show us she has way more talent than Bella Swan gave her credit for. And now, she’s a scientist.
Stewart is gearing up to debut her directorial debut, a 17-minute short film called Come Swim, which was inspired by a painting Stewart had previously completed. The film integrates the painting using a technique called “style transfer,” which uses convolutional neural networks to have an algorithm change a video in real time. It’s kind of like a movie version of Prisma.
