Personalized Interfaces and the Arrival of Smart TV

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 12:45pm (CST)

2011 is going to be the year of the 'smart' connected TV: providing us with access to a vast amount of content (web video, live TV, TV catch up and on demand services). To navigate through the mountain of content we are going to need more than the current 'spreadsheet' approach to navigation. With the advent of Smart TVs comes the need for intelligent, personalised filters that will help us find and discover the content that we are going to right at that point in time.

This panel will bring together the people behind the best video services that can be consumed through the TV (e.g. embedded in TV, next generation Set-Top Box, game console, etc...), experts in personalisation/recommendation technologies and social media gurus.

The panel will chart the key changes in TV's evolution from 'dumb' to 'smart', highlight the best examples of smart, personalised TV services available today and predict how these (and future) services will change the way we consume and interact with TV forever more.

LEVEL: Intermediate
