MEDIA INNOVATION in the age of AI, social media and fake news

Enriching the media experience through data analytics, social media and AI.

This expert-led conference will explore how stakeholders in the media sector can take advantage of the latest data-driven innovations and research results to enrich the media experience for the end-user. In particular, the following aspects will be in focus:

  • Enriching content through data valorization
  • Handling social media and fake news
  • Leveraging artificial intelligence to offer better content

The conference is organized by EPFL, a major European research institution. It will gather key experts from the research and media technology ecosystem, from professors to labs, startups and innovative media technology companies.

The event addresses middle and top management experts in the media industry, and aims at strengthening collaboration, research and innovation between the media industry and the academic world. Key speakers will include Pierre Vandergheynst, EPFL Vice-President for Education, David Mowrey, VP Offering Management at IBM Watson Media and Jacques-Edouard Guillemot, SVP at Nagra Kudelski.

The conference is the first topical event organized by MediaRoad, a EU-funded initiative to create a European media ecosystem for innovation, and is timely aligned with the EBU Big Data Conference 2018.
