Veritone’s Mike Arthur to Speak at SVG Content Management Forum on July 24 in NYC

Company’s Senior Vice President Will Join Other Esteemed Panelists to Discuss Advances in AI and Machine Learning for Sports Media Applications

COSTA MESA, Calif. July 16, 2019 — Veritone, Inc. (Nasdaq: VERI) today announced that Mike Arthur, senior vice president, licensing, will participate in a session titled “AI and Machine Learning for MAM: Let’s Get Real” at the 13th annual Sports Video Group (SVG) Content Management Forum on July 24. The session is scheduled for 11:40 a.m.-12:25 p.m. at the Westin New York at Times Square.

“Automating metadata enrichment by leveraging artificial intelligence to identify faces, logos, and objects, and to convert speech to text for closed captioning, enhances the content-creation ecosystem significantly. As cognitive processing is becoming more prevalent, sports content creators are exploring new ways to capitalize on these advances,” Arthur said. “With our aiWARE™ operating system for artificial intelligence, Veritone is bringing these nearly inconceivable capabilities into the mainstream, so that nontechnical people can integrate them into their day-to-day work. I’m looking forward to joining other industry experts and early adopters as we discuss the financial drivers, workflow advantages, and obstacles that influence purchase decisions.”

The SVG Content Management Forum will feature leaders in media asset management (MAM), with speakers from major broadcasters, leagues, teams, OTT outlets, and vendors offering firsthand perspectives and behind-the-curtain looks at their respective workflows. In addition to the AI and machine learning session, topics will include the current state of MAM and archiving, cloud and virtualization, and object storage and next-gen storage technologies.
