What’s Next for Video? An Excerpt from Ilya’s Interview with Inc. Magazine

Our mission at Powtoon is to democratize
Developing for the future
Our voice-to-video prototype, Powtoon Storyteller, was a recent finalist in IBM’s Watson Build Challenge artificial intelligence contest.
Today, you give Siri tasks or talk to your phone while it takes down notes. Soon, video creation will be as easy as dictating your ideas into your phone. In fact, our voice-to-video prototype, Powtoon Storyteller, was a recent finalist in IBM’s Watson Build Challenge artificial intelligence contest. So that future could be closer than we think.
But beyond AI and future tech, we are working on projects that have very practical business benefits. We’re currently releasing a pilot with Salesforce which will enable companies to use data from their CRM to create individually personalized videos to send to thousands of their customers with just a few clicks.
We will continue the hyper-growth partnering strategy that’s worked for us until now. This year alone we’ve partnered with AWS, YouTube, Microsoft, IBM, Salesforce, HubSpot, Adobe, Kaltura, Getty, and others to develop integrations and solutions at our technological intersections. Developing solutions for partners makes video a natural part of their users’ daily lives and allows them to bring their users the ability to easily create videos when and where they need it.R
