The $15 billion AI industry is taking hold in Hollywood transforming every aspect of the media and entertainment business.

Trend watchers are projecting large impacts on the world economy for AI and machine learning technology, with estimates as high as $15 billion worldwide. One of the segments where AI’s impact is starting to be felt is the media industry, partly because video and other media files, as well as their searchable metadata, are already ripe for analysis by AI algorithms. Online providers such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime are already using AI-driven recommendation engines to suggest content to their subscribers. Add in the huge universe of ad tech, where consumption and viewership are closely analyzed and fed back into the content being provided, and you can see that an end-to-end AI revolution in media is already underway.

Our panel of seasoned media technology executives will cover the current state of the art of AI in media, discuss where things are headed, and provide their thoughts during an open exchange with audience members. Panelists include:

Sam Bogoch, CEO, axle.ai – axle is one of the companies spearheading adoption of AI technology in the media space. axle ai has over 550 customers worldwide including WB (the Ellen De Generis Show), Paramount, NBCU and Turner/CNN. Sam was previously Director of Product Management at Avid.

Rick Grandy, Senior Solutions Architect, NVidia - with over two decades of experience in visual effects including “Transformers 2”, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and over 30 motion pictures, Rick brings massive real-world experience to applying Nvidia technology to AI applications in media.
