Do AI’s Dream in Digital Media? | Susanne Coates | TEDxMontgomeryBlairHS


Beginning as a technique that required film strips and chemical treatment, filmmaking has been continually adapting to new technologies as they have become available. Now, how will the rise of artificial intelligence change what the practice consists of? Susanne Coates, a long-time filmmaker and multimedia software developer, shares her thoughts. Susanne Coates is a filmmaker with extensive experience in software development and neural engineering. Dr. Coates primary research interest is the development of collaborative, geolocated, multi-modal storytelling paradigms and the web-based technologies to support them. Such paradigms are particularly useful to educate about complex issues which span time, location and information modality. She is currently the Sr. Web Developer for the University of Maryland’s, College of Arts and Humanities where she creates software for web-based, multimedia content management systems. She is also the co-owner of ArsMeta Films, a production company she co-founded with a colleague to produce documentary films that focus on social and environmental issues. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
