Future of Entertainment and “The Channel of You"

Monday, March 14
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Four Seasons
San Jacinto
98 San Jacinto Blvd

There’s no doubt that the Internet of Things is making services and devices smarter. Netflix knows your viewing preferences, Spotify knows your musical tastes and Fitbit knows your activity levels. Better understanding of individual entertainment preferences, consumption behavior and context across platforms and services is enabling next-generation predictive analytics that will soon eliminate the need to sort through content on oodles of TV channels, short form videos and music services. The future beyond recommendations and discovery will revolve around one channel that knows exactly what you like across devices, locations and times. The future of entertainment is “The Channel of You.”
