IABM Technical Breakfast: AI – is it for real or just marketing hoopla for smart data crunching? – Thursday 28 June
This IABM member-only event, has an expert panel looking at the reality of AI in broadcasting and media today – is it for real or just marketing hoopla for smart data crunching? We have seen tangible results of how big data analysis increasingly drives content choice and delivery – but is this just hyped up as AI and actually just smart data crunching? Does AI have further practical applications within media and entertainment? The APAC region is extremely culturally varied; can applied AI work across regions and countries? Sign up here and join the debate!
