As a digital video archivist, I seek to reproduce old content as an “asset” appropriate for the future digital era, and thereby support the transmission of contents. I would like to support multi-use of content in the future digital age. Consequently, I am especially interested in technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), blockchain, and 4K8K high definition video. My goal is to learn how broadcasters could use these technologies. In anticipation of full-scale implementation of AI (artificial intelligence) and IoT (Internet of goods), I would like to study how best to provide information for a particular device.
