Future Lab radio is sponsored by Intel Labs and is available on Intel Free Press and through iTunes.  

Television is far more complex than just the infrastructure that brings a signal to a TV set. It is the business of funding watchable programs in order to sell them to advertisers or audiences. It is a complex arrangement of creative and distribution legal agreements. It is what happens in front of and behind the cameras-the work of actors, hosts, writers, and editors. And it is the measurement of audience approval and engagement, perhaps the most important cog in the enterprise of television. In the book “Screen Future: The Future of Entertainment, Computing, and the Devices We Love” futurist Brian David Johnson outlines a direction for the development of television that goes beyond the concept of mere Internet distribution. What happens when television technology merges with the computer, when your devices know who you are, what you like to watch, and how? What transformations can we expect in the business of TV?
