Thank you for all your tremendous work organizing yesterday. It’s bold to bring everyone together from deep machine learning to publishers as brands - but it worked so well! I learnt a lot and met some great people, so thank you so much for including me!
— Sophie Lebrecht, Neon Labs, CEO
As comedians, we weren’t quite sure what to expect at the LDV Summit. But seeing as we do much of our work on YouTube and in the digital space, it was really cool to learn about how future technologies will change the ways in which we develop and create content.
— Ethan Fixell, The Dave and Ethan Show
