Here’s what happened on Day 2 of IBC2023, as the IBC Conference continued and the content programme delved into AI and VFX, while in the keynote speech, creative technologist Marco Tempest imagined a virtual future where everyone is invited to play.

“From development through physical production to post production and distribution, I believe [machine learning and AI] has the ability to help our industry advance,” SMPTE President Renard T Jenkins told the IBC Daily.

”That said, I feel we need to make sure that we see this technology as a tool, and not as an entity. The human and computer interaction is key to success in the space for the long term.”
