03 Nov DEG’s NextUP: Assessing Machine Learning’s Impact on Home Entertainment
Thanks to all who attended DEG’s NextUP Fall Emerging Tech Forum, produced by DEG’s Member Advisory Council, in cooperation with Intel Capital and the Innovation Outreach Program (IOP).
Xperi CTO Steve Teig (above) delivered an enthusiastically received keynote on the impact of machine learning to revolutionize home entertainment in the short, mid and long terms, describing a path from technologies such as automatic subtitle generation and translation through digital viewing companions and to fully immersive content experiences.
In his opening remarks, DEG Chair Mike Dunn of 20th Century Fox described major consumer data projects at the studio that have been made more effective and less costly through machine learning applications.
Attendees also saw presentations from 10 emerging tech companies using AI and machine learning to produce consumer insights and rich metadata: Amenity Analytics, Cinelytic, Clarifai, Lytics, Panoply, ParallelM, Sprinklr, TVision Insights, TheTake and Zorroa.
