"The Death of the Remote, and the Rise of the Conversational UI" at TVOT SF 2017

[itvt] is pleased to present a video (above) and audio recording (below) of the TVOT SF 2017 panel session, "The Death of the Remote, and the Rise of the Conversational UI."

The session was described in the show brochure as follows:

"For years now, the remote has defined the limitations of user interface (UI) design for the big-screen experience. Menus, rails and walls of image tiles arguably hinder users and make content discovery a real pain point across all platforms. However, new advances in voice technology, machine learning and data analytics promise to liberate digital design from past constraints and make it easier for users to navigate the media landscape.
 
This session will discuss--from a business, technology and design perspective--the opportunities and challenges in implementing a conversational UI, the state of the technology that underlies it, and some of the solutions currently in the marketplace." Panelists included:
 
  • Fabian Birgfeld, CEO, W12 Studios (Moderator)
  • Scott Francis, CTO, THX
  • Shawn Johnson, VP of Experience Design, NBCUniversal
  • Arthur Orduna, Chief Innovation Officer, Avis Budget Group
  • Dewey Reid, VP/Executive Creative Director, CNN
  • Margret Schmidt, Chief Design Officer, TiVo
  • Zane Vella, VP of Product--Strategic Planning and Development, Comcast
