Yves BergquistDirector of the AI & Neuroscience in Media Project at Entertainment Technology Center (ETC)
Yves Bergquist is the Director of the “AI & Neuroscience in Media” Project at the Entertainment Technology Center (ETC), where his team is developing next-generation applications drawn from AI and neuroscience for the media and entertainment industry. ETC is funded by all 6 Hollywood studios, as well as technology companies such as Microsoft, Cisco, Nagra, Technicolor, and Nielsen.
Yves is also CEO of AI startup Corto, which is building a comprehensive knowledge engine to help media and entertainment companies develop deep, “genomics”-type insights into how their content resonates with audiences. This project offers integrated insights across content and audience data using semantic knowledge representation and probabilistic evolutionary meta-learning to autonomously “breed” new generations of machine learning algorithms from hundreds of “parent” algorithms.
