As AI gets smarter and better at interpreting visual, emotional and narrative content, its capability to assist editing workflows is growing day-by-day. Similarly, machine-learning powered VFX

DeepFakes. They are also shaping emerging virtual production workflows. But how long will it be until these technologies are fully integrated into professional workflows in the entertainment
industry? What do practitioners and companies need to know and do right now to take the lead?
