    15:30 hrs - Newsrooms in the new digital economy

    When talking about newsrooms of the future we tend to think of a room full of technicians and systems in charge of writing, editing and reporting. What we propose is to think of a different approach: that of a digital newsroom, full of journalists, supported by technology and focused on a very specific focus: News & Audience First. This presentation will provide a thorough analysis of which are the pillars that support "the newsroom of the future" and how technology can strengthen the workflows it needs.

    Fighting misinformation in electoral times

    Location: 
    Argentine Hall

    Last year, we observed how mis and disinformation spread on social media aimed at influencing voters' decisions in the run-up to the US, French and other presidential elections. In 2018, general elections will be held in numerous countries in the region: Colombia, Costa Rica, Paraguay and Venezuela; and the two most populated ones: Brazil and Mexico. The role of news media in this context will be crucial not only in limiting the spread of rumors, manipulated and fabricated content but also in providing verified and balanced information to voters. What tools can newsrooms and news media companies use to do so?

    Artificial Intelligence can drive media industry growth

    Location: 
    Argentina Hall

    With the recent convergence of a transformative set of technologies, economies are entering a new era in which artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to overcome the physical limitations of capital and labor and open up new sources of value and growth.

    The major driver of digital disruption is the ubiquity of data. Industries where data plays a greater role are more vulnerable to disruption, as we have seen very clearly for some time in the Media industry...an early "victim" of digital disruption.

    The media industry is incorporating artificial intelligence into the routines of various departments: marketing, advertising, writing, computer graphics ... Thanks to the automation in collecting, analysis and treatment of commercial and journalistic information, which still carries the grave consequences of the crisis, seeks to secure the future.
