Google to unveil Auto Awesome feature that creates stories from your videos

Stashed in: Google!

We're told that the new video feature is similar to HTC's Video Highlights in that it uses smart editing, cutting and sequencing techniques to splice a professional-like highlight reel using different types of media. While we don't know exactly how these new features operate, Google SVP Vic Gundotra teased today's announcement with the tagline "#momentsthatmatter," suggesting we won't have long to wait to see the new Auto Awesome feature in the flesh.

I'm skeptical. Skeptical that it can do what they say and skeptical that anyone will use it.

The name "auto awesome" is too mirthful to take seriously.

I think we will quickly lose interest in slick treatments of our "moments that matter".

Right! Moments that matter should be fairly raw, unpolished, and full of emotion, right?

Exactly.  Well put.

Google does seem to have difficulty with actual human emotion.
