As the Chief Visionary Officer and co-founder of StoryFile, Heather Smith is paving the way for a new generation of storytelling. Heather Smith’s love for storytelling was born when she found herself creating Holocaust remembrance exhibits that traveled to Jewish Community Centers across the country and even to the United Nations. She believed the stories of Holocaust survivors were so important to capture for generations to come that she began to reimagine the storytelling experience with Artificial Intelligence (AI). She saw video as the new medium for human interaction long before we even had FaceTime. She knew the next wave of communication was going to be through video. With a passion for the project, Heather set out to create Conversa, the AI engine that drives the StoryFile platform where people can talk to a pre-recorded video as if the individual is there in front of them.
