Let’s envision video as our default setting in life. In this future we prefer to communicate through video, as opposed to all other mechanisms, so during a given day we participate in videoconferences as often as we check emails or text one another today. We consume content primarily through video – i.e., we’re watching stuff pretty frequently. We also make video, either by passive recording (having systems record our lives) or actively creating video content (recording, remixing, editing, sharing).
Bryan Alexander discusses the possible future of video as a medium. He provides a number of scenarios, including responsive interfaces everywhere. He also explores some of the possible responses to this, such as revulsion at deepfakes and destruction of screens. What is not discussed is the data associated with all of this.
