TVOT SF 2017 Panel Session on Conversational UI

[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording 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
