Preserving interactive family stories with Heather Maio-Smith, CEO and co-founder, StoryFile

Gary Pageau of the Dead Pixels Society talks with Heather Maio-Smith, CEO and co-founder, StoryFile, about using AI-driven video conversations to preserve family history.

In 2010, Maio-Smith developed the first 3D interactive conversation with Holocaust Survivor Rose Schindler through her creative agency Conscience Display. At the time, she was creating physical video installations at the United Nations, USC, and in Havana, Cuba. As a leader in content-based technology, she has spoken about Natural Conversation at Microsoft (2017), US Holocaust Museum (2017), Dartmouth College (2018), FoST (2018), SXSW (2019), SXSW (2019), The LA Times Festival of Books (2019), M.I.T. (2020), and AI Summit (2020).

StoryFile is a company that turns video into a conversation. This next generation of technology uses artificial intelligence to support video conversations on any device. The company offers a consumer service called StoryFile Life and a business-to-business service offering called Conversa.
