Blockchain is a revolutionary technology that has great potential to solve many of the fundamental challenges facing the music industry today. In fact, this technology is uniquely suited to address issues across the various industry sectors, including rights management, licensing, copyright ownership, royalty tracking and reporting and the primary and secondary ticketing markets for live events. Likely, however, its adoption will be incremental and more evolutionary than revolutionary-- impacting the music industry in a segmented fashion, as opposed to a global transformation.

How AI is changing the business landscape in the entertainment industry

Article | February 14, 2020

Whether you realise it or not, we are entering a new and unprecedented age: one driven largely by artificial intelligence. Up until very recently, artificial intelligence was of a very narrow sort. Put simply, it could do certain things, like arithmetic, very well. But other things, like speech recognition and complex decision-making, were left to humans. Nowadays, computing power has reached a stage where machines can learn for themselves – and the implications are sure to be felt in every area of the economy. This includes the entertainment industry – right down to smaller studios, who, with the help of small business loans, are now able to access worlds of ai-driven power previously denied to them.

Sony is struggling to land on a price for its upcoming PlayStation 5 console, according to a new report by Bloomberg, with component shortages potentially pushing the MSRP beyond that of the PS4. The bill of materials is said to be at around $450 right now, compared to IHS Markit’s estimate of $381 for the PS4, which sold for $399 upon its release in 2013. Unless Sony is willing to sell the PS5 at a loss, a $450 build cost would make the new console significantly more expensive than Sony’s current $399 PS4 Pro, which is often discounted to as low as $299. It was once common for consoles to be sold as loss leaders, but Sony designed the PS4 to be profitable from the start after losing billions on the technically ambitious PS3 at launch.
