IBM at the Tribeca Film Festival 2017

I had the privilege of staffing the IBM Lounge at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City last week which provided an excellent opportunity for attendees to connect with IBM subject matter experts to learn how technology can be applied to storytelling. The exhibits included:

  • T Brand Studio Augmented Reality app for iOS and Android. The feature film, “Hidden Figures,” inspired this Augmented Reality app and brings to life virtual statues of the film’s compelling characters - Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan. In the 1950s, these incredible women helped NASA launch the U.S. into space with their calculations. Use this Augmented Reality app to discover the remarkable contributions made by these women and others. Grab your phone and explore your city with Augmented Reality to uncover these influential stories!  Supported cities include Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington D.C. Users not located in these cities can learn more about these inspiring women directly on the app
  • TJ Bot is a open source robot for makers, creators and thinkers to explore Artificial Reality with Watson
  • Musician with Watson allows you to pick a mood, pick a genre and make your own music on the keyboard or drum kit. Let Watson create your next big hit through technologies that understand emotion in music

Great to meet you Chris. I thought Watson's presence was great the TFF and featuring the forgotten STEM scientists and the ability to influence music "feeling" were just two of the experiences were AR and VR are alive and well in the Media and Music industries!
