- Generative AI (think ChatGPT and DALL●E) is poised to change the media and entertainment industry in myriad ways.
- Yves Bergquist and Seyhan Lee AI Director Pinar Seyhan Demirdag will discuss how creatives can use generative AI tools to facilitate their work today at a NAB Show Create session on April 17 at 3 p.m.
- The “Generative AI: Coming Now to a Workflow Near You?“ panel will be moderated by NAB Amplify Senior Editor Emily M. Reigart.
A NAB show panel discussion aims to separate the hype from the “how” and “now” of generative AI for M&E.
This panel, featuring AI & Blockchain in Media Project Director Yves Bergquist and Seyhan Lee AI Director Pinar Seyhan Demirdag, will discuss how generative AI tools can help the media and entertainment industry in 2023, and consider how this technology might disrupt and augment workflows in 2024 and beyond.
Discover where Bard, Whisper, and Dall●E might fit into your creative process, and learn about other AI tools that could soon automate microworkflows at a desk near you.
“Generative AI: Coming Now to a Workflow Near You?” is part of the Create track, scheduled for Monday, April 17, at 3 p.m. (PT) in the North Hall Meeting Rooms.
A NAB Show Conference Pass is required for this session. Register here.

He is also the CEO of AI engineering firm Novamente, which applies neural-symbolic artificial general intelligence to large enterprise problems. Novamente is the AI developer behind Hanson Robotics’ “Sophia.” His team also built the world’s very first fully autonomous AI-driven hedge fund, Aidyia, which is now defunct.

Pinar Seyhan Demirdag is an A.I. director, multidisciplinary creator, visionary, an outspoken advocate for the conscious use of technology, and an opinion leader in generative A.I.
In 2020, Demirdag and Gary Koepke founded Seyhan Lee, which has become the bridge between generative AI and the entertainment industry. Seyhan Lee created the first generative AI VFX for a feature film (“Descending the Mountain“) and the first brand-sponsored generative AI film (“Connections/Beko“).
In 2022, they announced Cuebric, a tool that combines several different AIs to streamline the production of 2.5-D environments for virtual production stages.
The panel will be moderated by NAB Amplify Senior Editor Emily M. Reigart.
