Synthedia – The First Synthetic Media Conference is Online, Free, Next Week
Synthetic media is a group of technologies that are having a moment and gaining momentum. Even if you don’t know the term, you definitely know the technologies that make up the synthetic media landscape. Virtual humans, voice clones, AI-enabled image generators, AI-enabled text generators, deepfakes, synthetic celebrities, and related technologies are all at the forefront of a synthetic media revolution.
The stage of synthetic media adoption today has a lot of similarities to voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant in 2016-17. There is so much going on that Voicebot has launched a daily newsletter on the topic and decided to host an online conference next week. The conference is free. The video below offers some added details. Register to attend live or to get easy access to the recordings after the event.
