The Video Invasion: How video is changing the way we engage with the world — Kori Inkpen (Microsoft Research)

Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Video. Online video today accounts for a huge percentage of Internet traffic, and these numbers are expected to continue to rise at a dramatic rate. Although these numbers reflect the huge appetite consumers have for visual media, the true game-changer has yet to come. Streaming video provides opportunities for users to watch video when and where they want, and opens up new creation and distribution channels, but, consumption is still a relatively passive experience. Instead, the truly magical experiences that video can provide will come when video connects and engages people in new ways. This talk will examine insights on how the intersection of social media and video is changing the way we engage with the world, and the potential this medium has to transform our lives.
