Invited Presentations and Talks

At the 2008 O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference I gave an Ignite Talk about natural language watermarking.

I was invoted to a panel discussion on media sharing at the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) 2007 Conference on Emerging Technologies. My presentation focused on how to enable seamless content consumption among consumer devices.
