At Web2day, no two days are alike. This year, Friday has some super surprises in store for you. Exceptional guests, unique experiences, tricky subjects, Dead2day… We don’t want to spoil you, but the festival intends to close this 11th edition on a very high note. And the icing on the cake is the low price of the pass (just 99 euros on Friday against 149 euros on the other days). Yes, not bad for enjoying the #digitalspringbreak Friday experience. Come on, we’ll tell you more. 👇🏻
Taïg Khris, from extreme sport to start-up. 🚀
🕓9:30-10:00 📍Salle MAXI
Since making his angel leap from the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, the legend of rollerblading has come a long way. That was in 2010, and the athlete has now hung up his skates on a professional level to focus on “OnOff“, a telecom company that allows you to have multiple numbers via the cloud. Although investment funds granted Taïg little or no credit to begin with, he managed to stand out and “integrate himself into the community”. He will open the day for a session based on diversity within start-ups.
André Manoukian, the “new star” of AI. 🔥
🕓15:05-15:45 📍Salle MAXI
The composer became involved with the technology entrepreneur, Philippe Guillaud. Together, they designed the Museek platform. Using Artificial Intelligence, these co-creators are taking video creation to another level. Indeed, the platform uses an algorithm to generate pieces of music (audio content) that can be adapted to fit a video (visual content). In the long term, their ambition is to make Museek “the standard for content synchronisation”. In the meantime, the songwriter will be here with us for this 11th edition of Web2day and will tell you about AI in the music industry during a FireSideChat with Arnaud Chaigneau.
If we thought, a few years ago, that dematerialisation would serve the environmental cause, we are more disappointed today. From streaming to emailing to cloud storage, every single thing in your daily life contributes to what we now call: digital pollution. This year, Ines Leonarduzzi will be attending Web2day to discuss this subject, which she understands all too well. In addition to being CEO of Digital For The Planet, she is also a member of the management board of the Transitions Institute and an associate member of the National Institute of Circular Economics. She has fought a real fight over digital ecology and will explain the major challenges.
🕓15:50-16:35 📍Salle MAXI

In the digital world, evolution is on the up. From year to year, codes continue to change, and practices evolve.

It will take place on Friday afternoon around the Society & Life track, and what we promise you is a futuristic trip in its own right. We even wrote an article for the occasion, and it’s right here. 💪
