IABM Technical Breakfast: AI – is it for real or just marketing hoopla for smart data crunching? – Thursday 28 June
This IABM member-only event, which starts at 9.00am in Meeting Room 326 (registration 8.30am), 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!
IABM member lounge – open throughout the show
All IABM members have free use of the IABM member lounge at booth 6C3-04. With ample seating and Wi-Fi available it is a great location to conduct meetings or follow up on leads away from the hubbub of vendors’ booths.
“BroadcastAsia is a strategic partner of IABM for good reason – it’s the premier show in the region and a great place to check out what’s happening in our industry now, and what’s coming next,” said Peter Bruce, IABM Director, APAC. “As well as all the formal events we are running during BroadcastAsia, the IABM team will be on hand throughout the show to support members’ activities and provide advice and introductions to facilitate better business.”
