Anthony Kuzub, Chair of the AES Toronto, Sr. Systems Designer at CBC/Radio-Canada
Title: The Audio Industry & “AI”
Synopsis: Synthetic media is revolutionizing the world, but the audio industry has been at the forefront of innovation since the 1970s. Over the decades, the industry has adapted by implementing advanced automation, developing speech recognition, transforming sounds to create new auditory experiences, and generating entirely new sounds for content creation. Anthony P. Kuzub will explore these developments and the impact of AI on media, offering insights into the ongoing evolution of audio and synthetic media.

 

The “asymptote of despair”

“if we plot progress versus time it should be pretty much linear.  We are currently right about here  approaching the danger zone between works and done and those two things are not the same we have to be very careful not to get sidetracked at The Works
boundary and end up over here on the Asymptote of Despair where time goes to
infinity and we never quite finish our project”
