The yearly SMPTE Technical Conference and Exhibition was held late last month in Downtown Los Angeles at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, a new venue for the event.
The conference included presentations that touched on all three of the organization’s “pillars,” which are Standards, Education and Membership.
One of the highlights was a session on autonomous vehicles and how AI and machine learning are making that happen. You might wonder, “What will everyone do with that extra non-driving time?” Well, companies are already thinking of ways to entertain you while you’re on your way to where you need to go. The schedule of sessions and presentations can be found here.
Another highlight at this year’s SMPTE Conference was the Women in Technology lunch, which featured a conversation between Disney’s Kari Grubin and Fem Inc.’s Rachel Payne. Payne is a tech entrepreneur and technology executive who has worked at companies like Google. She was also a Democratic candidate for the 48th Congressional District of California. It was truly inspiring to hear about her path.
Feeling like you might have missed some cool stuff? Well don’t worry, postPerspective’s production crews were capturing interviews with manufacturers in the exhibit hall and with speakers, SMPTE members and so many others throughout the Conference.
