AI and the media: what future for the information sector and its audiences?

Algorithms and advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are already impacting media organizations and journalistic production.

Should anyone be afraid of these new tools? What are the real possibilities they offer today?

With this Learning Lab (in French), which took place online on 3 November as part of the Swiss Digital Days 2020, the Academy of Journalism and Media (AJM) of the University of Neuchâtel and Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS), with support from the IMI, wanted to explore the benefits that these technologies have for journalists, broadcast professionals and the general public. This event was attended by approximately 80 people who were able to interact with the speaker.
