To manage this complexity, the industry has started deploying data and analytics solutions throughout its development, production and distribution processes. But many challenges remain.

Next month’s Audience Intelligence panel will address these challenges.

Panelists include Dr. Gian Gonzaga of Earnest (formerly of Netflix), Justin Herz of Warner Bros., Wayne Peacock of Disney, Sarath Ramaswami of 20th Century Fox, and Dr. Antonio Damasio of USC.
