7 DECEMBER - 9AM

Boosted by newly-available software tools, artificial intelligence (AI) is enjoying a re-gain of popularity in many fields, and, for the first time since its inception over 50 years ago, AI is now affecting the entertainment industry, and the impact will be strong & long-lasting, especially for XR applications.

This Thematic Conference shows you that the much touted-about AI is not a silver bullet, but an à-la-mode, catch-all term for advanced computer-science and engineering techniques such as computer vision, natural language understanding, machine learning, and deep learning. The conference shows you how AI allows old movies to be brought-up to full HD; stories, video sequences, and sound tracks to be generated automatically; and storytelling to be stretchy, nonlinear, and emotion guided.

International companies may find it strategically useful to sponsor/adopt this innovative, straight-to-the-point conference.
