Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Digital Media Creation:

The Promise, The Reality, and The (Scary?) Future



SMPTE 2017 kicks-off on Monday, 23 October!



The day-long SMPTE 2017 Symposium on Monday, 23 Oct. is titled “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning in Digital Media Creation: The Promise, The Reality, and The (Scary?) Future.” The Symposium is co-chaired by SMPTE Fellow Michelle Munson and Yvonne Thomas of Arvato Systems.


The Symposium will examine how AI and machine learning technologies have gained significant traction in the creation of digital media. Speakers will offer practical use cases throughout the production chain — including story and script development, music composition, contextual analysis of dailies, edit preparation, imaging processing, visual effects (VXF) preparation, and audience engagement, along with discoverability and distribution of content. Experts, visionaries, and thought-leaders in the field will assist attendees in establishing a firm foundation for understanding these technologies which may eventually disrupt the media and entertainment industry.


The Symposium is included with select conference packages, as an add-on, or stand-alone registration.
