The Three. Le Trois. El Tres

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a productive weekend.

And you’re doing okay.

Here are the three articles that caught my eye today:

Podcasting at it’s best

Did you know that 37% of Americans listen to podcasts?

Other statistics from Alli’s article (it’s a direct quote):

“Podcast listeners consume an average of six shows per week and listen for an average of six hours and 39 minutes weekly — and that was before most Americans started hunkering down, schools closed, and companies shifted to remote working.”

How to train your employees to learn about artificial intelligence

In the media and entertainment (and in all industries to be honest with you), it’s important to teach your employees everything about artificial intelligence. Why? Because it’s going to impact on your business.

Here’s how WPP (it’s a global advertising agency) is doing it (you can use the company’s plan as a guide for your organization. The key person to lead this? Your Chief Technology Officer (CTO))

WPP wants to train 50K employes on AI. Here’s how they plan to do it.

Do you have enough programming (from a tv or cable network perspective)?

At some point or another, you’re watching a lot of Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu etc. Instead of watching regular TV or cable programs (there’s only so much you can watch when it comes to COVID-19 updates to be honest you. And you need a distraction).

Here’s a technical article on how to deal with the situation if you’re a TV or cable network (hint: it involves something called the “cloud”).

Oh, when you see the words “legacy content”, it means old tv or cable television shows.

How can media companies use legacy content to fill their schedules?

Stay at home fitness workout

Thanks for reading!

I will see you virtually via this email newsletter on Tuesday!

Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
