Top 75 Multimedia Trends in February

From Deepfake Online Regulations to Intuitive AI Cameras

— February 23, 2020 — Tech
These February 2020 multimedia trends range from intuitive AI cameras to customizable cable plans.

When it comes to at-home entertainment, Verizon's Mix and Match cable service is one of the month's most notable innovations. The plan gives the company's internet subscribers access to up to 5 channels of their choice and is specially geared toward consumers that are likely to consume media through streaming services. This option gives consumers the best of both worlds and makes niche channels available to those not ready or interested in a more formal cable service commitment.

Social media deepfake regulations and reality-replicating music shows round off this list and speak to the limitless potential of human-mimicking technology -- both when it comes to its many capabilities and its rising ethical concerns.
