THE STREAMING FORUM TO FOCUS ON AI AND MACHINE LEARNING IN 20188th Jan 2018
This year’s Streaming Forum will have a strong focus on AI and machine learning, according to a recent article.
Amazon’s Echo showcase caused a stir at the Las Vegas CES, with a huge, Echo-speaker-shaped meeting room in C Space, the ‘creative communications, brand marketing, advertising, digital publishing, social networking and entertainment’ section.
There is little doubt across the industry that AI and Machine Learning will drive and change the way online video is created, distributed and consumed. It is also growing and adapting to every field, which is part of the reason why it will be highlighted so strongly at this years’ Streaming Forum.
It won’t all be about AI and Machine Learning though. The programme for this years’ conference and exhibition will feature OTT ‘stars’, like Jeff Webb, Sky’s principal streaming architect, who will open the show with a keynote based around Sky’s live streaming platform, offering insights and explaining how the business will move towards a containerised, microservices architecture, with a peep at Sky Q.
Attendees to The Streaming Forum can look forward to insights into the way OTT is being impacted by AI, and giving publishers the opportunity to maximise their QoS and QoE through the use of AI-based analytics, particularly with the growing ‘big data’ challenges.
The Streaming Forum is a not-to-be-missed chance for industry professionals to learn, network and participate. This years’ event will be held at London’s ExCel in February, and will be alongside BVE.
The Streaming Company will be there, why not join us? The event will be packed with expert sessions, panel discussions and more, and provide excellent networking opportunities. Some of the sessions and keynotes will touch on how to get smarter about encoding and transcoding, VR and 360° video, content protection and DRM, live event streaming, live linear streaming and delivery and distribution.
