This morning, we head to radio broadcaster KQED’s new headquarters where they have made in-person events a real focus. In this session, we will learn about advances in audio, tests with AI, smart speakers, and synthetic voice.
Substack has had an enormous influence on the news industry as news media are grappling with new ways to work with talent. AI will again change this and trust is likely to play an even more important role in the ecosystem. We’ll meet Hamish McKenzie, co-founder of Substack, to talk about individuals as brands, how Substack is looking at the likely impact of AI, and what are the opportunities for brands to work with Substack.
We’ll grab a bite to eat with Karen Silverman to discuss what we have learned during the week and how opinions of AI have changed since Monday morning.
