In collaboration with NYU Courant and NYU Center for Data Science, Hearst is exploring the promise of automation by using new tools, ranging from natural language processing to artificial intelligence to computer vision techniques and automatic image annotation.
Vonage and NYC Media Lab convened a team from NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering to examine IoT products to develop a perspective on what’s possible with machine learning platforms and algorithms, and to determine which algorithms would be best suited for the various types of learning that would be required in the IoT field.
NYC Media Lab collaborated with Viacom’s New Experience Team (NEXT) for the Viacom Virtual Reality Fellowship that took place in summer 2016. Viacom NEXT, led by Chaki Ng, with Rob Ruffler and David Liu, is focusing intensely on VR. The Fellowship was a way to foster a sharing of techniques with young talent from local NYC universities where there is tremendous interest and enthusiasm for rapid prototyping in VR.
