In collaboration with the AT&T Foundry and Ericsson, we’re proud to introduce “The Future of Entertainment” — the second installment of The Futurist Report series — an inside look into the cutting edge technologies and startups shaping tomorrow. Why entertainment? The entertainment industry is undergoing a radical transformation with vast shifts in the way media is created, distributed, and consumed. We took an industry-wide view to dig into emerging trends, distill key insights and explore the broader business implications of these technologies. Based on input from 100+ industry experts, executives, startups and academics, we developed 10 Bold Projections to showcase how entertainment will fundamentally reshape our lives in the years to come.
The 10 Bold Projections:
- Clicks are the new casting call
- Algorithms will enable a new world of storytelling
- Fans will be part of their media's org. chart
- A digital rights revolution will empower creators
- A new media gateway will emerge as your TV Guide
- Virtual assistants will win your living room (and your Connected Life)
- Screens will be fluid, not fixed
- Live experiences will transcend boundaries of time and space
- Media will be emotionally intelligent Immersive experiences will be full-sensory and social
