Top 40 Multimedia Trends in February

From Digital Art Museums to AI Award Show Coverage

— February 25, 2018 — Tech
These February 2018 multimedia trends range from digital art museums to AI award shows. A notable example is the 2018 Grammys Awards partnership with Watson Media. The partnership included the implementation of IBM Watson software in the event and used it to analyze photos and videos of attendees during its red carpet coverage segment.

Other February 2018 multimedia innovations to note include a number of home electronics and design products that were recently unveiled at the CES 2018 innovation conference in Las Vegas. These range from the Vestaboard -- an app-connected message board that can replace classic notes and calendar reminders or double as an interactive art piece in one's home -- along with the sleek 'Sony AF8 4K OLED TV' which features an incredible resolution and invisible stand design.
