Robot journalists – they’re now among us!

  • Talks & Workshops
  • Friday 15 June, we promise you that it will still be human beings who come to inform you of the latest media news! But for how much longer…?

    Web2day delivers you its biggest secrets on the evolution of the media. A morning is dedicated to this theme at Médiacampus on Ile de Nantes. This surprising news will arouse your curiosity from 10:20 am to 12:30 pm. We explain it all!

    Conference: “AI & MEDIA”

    Friday 15 June from 10:20 to 10:35 am.

    To kick off the day, Claude de Loupy will present his startup, Syllabs. This entrepreneur has thrown himself into the adventure of artificial intelligence. The aim of the concept? To create content automatically. This project raises a host of questions, such as the future of journalism or our new behaviour towards information.

    Besides him will be Eric Scherer, Director of Innovation, Prospectives and the MédiaLab at France Television. His reputation in the media sector is already well established. His career has been very full, notably as Strategic Director of the AFP. His essay for Presse Universitaire de France “Do we still need the journalists?” – A manifesto for augmented journalism” echoes the ideas of Claude de Loupy… It will be pleasure to listen to him!



    Friday 15 June from 11:35 to 12:05

    After this introduction, Barbara Chazelle will talk to us about the new formats of journalism.

    While some newspapers are surfing the entertainment side of the news, other “soft news” media such as Vice or Konbini offer us serious news. A paradox? An evolution? What fate do the media hold in store for us for the coming years, months, hours and minutes? Barbara will tell you all about it!



    Friday 15 June from 12:05 to 12:30 pm

    Among all these questions about the future, let’s not forget the present. Linda Rolland will address the situation of journalists today. Freedom, plurality of expression, censure… Our editorial assistance from France Television will review the situation.
