It’s Thursday! Your Weekend? It Starts Now.

Happy Thursday!

I analyze how technology impacts the media and entertainment industry.

Here are the three articles you need to read so you can stay ahead of your competitors. Or you’ll end getting left behind:

1) from Kyle Wiggers:

https://venturebeat.com/2019/05/14/ibms-ai-achieves-state-of-the-art-broadcast-news-captioning/

Let’s be honest. Everyone says artificial intelligence will become your next news captioner/reporter etc. But as you read the article, you’ll notice that this wasn’t done during a live broadcast.

And if you think about it, a TV news operation still needs human reporters/editors etc to find and edit the stories you see on your local TV newscast.

The winners? The human reporters, editors etc.

2) from Charlene Weisler:

http://weislermedia.blogspot.com/2019/05/how-ai-and-machine-learning-are.html

Charlene’s headline says it all. Focus on her interviewees who talk about sports content. And the lastest GOT (Game of Thrones) coffee cup mistake (and how artificial intelligence can be used in both areas).

3) from Robert Briel:

https://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2019/05/16/netflix-leads-french-svod-market-with-57-3-share/

If you live in France, these numbers should/will scare you. Why? It demonstrates that technology (in this case, Netflix) is disrupting the linear TV and cable world (think about it for a second. Each time you play/stop/pause a program you watch on Netflix, it’s a datapoint for the company to consider).

P.S. Keep in mind that the French subscribers of Netflix are watching US content (and since there’s a lot of it on Netflix) = higher market share.

That’s your Thursday and early weekend round up from me.

See you next Thursday!

Have a great weekend!
