#OOHNYC @DSFederation #AI Cocktails & Controversy

Andrew Neale

Kicking off the whole week that is #OOHNYC is the Digital Signage Federation’s immensely popular Cocktails and Controversy event where this evening AI in Digital Signage is up for debate.

The event takes place at SONY’s Flatiron District offices (and there is still some availability) and is sponsored by the DSF Advisory Council.

The event begins with cocktails at 6:00 p.m. followed by a panel discussion. The Sony Offices are located at 25 Madison Ave. between East 24th and East 25th Street in Manhattan.

AI is seemingly everywhere, doing everything. At least that’s what the ChatBot driven headlines would have you believe. Whilst its clear the machine learning technology has captured the attention of everyone from the C-Suite to the casual programmer, AI’s impact on how business gets done across various industry verticals is still coming into focus. Digital Signage is no different.

On Monday the Digital Signage Federation will tackle the topic with ‘AI and Digital Signage – Myth, Marvel or Magic?‘ Industry veteran and Sixteen:Nine Founding Editor Dave Haynes truth-talks with the key industry leaders utilizing AI in their software platforms and explores how machine learning can take our industry to the next level both behind the walls, and in front of the customer. Making up this panel will be Jeffrey Weitzman, General Manager Navori Labs; Jim Nista, Consultant and Digital Signage Creative Director, and Chris Grosso, CEO at Intersection.

We encounter AI daily with our everyday computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence: speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. How is artificial intelligence and machine learning present in the way our software operates ‘behind the walls’ and how might AI generate new forms of content for digital signage? This panel will share the latest on AI use cases, de-bunk the myths we may propagate as an industry – and walk us through mind-blowing considerations for AI to future-proof digital signage and the way it is utilized today, and tomorrow.
