My profile

Hi, Iโ€™m Hourann, cofounder of Upright Media: we use AI to make it easy to edit video for all your social networks.

Many publishers and brands are only just beginning to discover the possibilities of video on social media (even though annual spend is already north of $10 billion), and thereโ€™s tons of room for AI assistants to come and automate the work involved. On the other hand, video production folks are often surprised when we show them what's possible with recent progress in (open-source!) deep learning.

I spent many years in Silicon Valley โ€” with highlights including a $700 million acquisition at Google โ€” and recently ticked over twenty years of involvement in web development in some form. I still travel to San Francisco regularly and am happy to advise local startups on how to get started there. (The short answer is, just go out and meet people!)

My other interest, mostly when beers at the pub are involved, is urban planning, and I might yet lapse into rants about train lines around Perth ๐ŸŒ†๐Ÿ˜‰
