OI2 invites you to participate in its 2020 research seminar: The challenge of artificial intelligence in audiovisual information

The Observatory for News Innovation in the Digital Society (OI2), promoted by Radio Televisión Española and the Autonomous University of Barcelona, organises and invites you to participate in the research seminar El reto de la inteligencia artificial en la información audiovisual. The event will take place on 6 February 2020 at the Faculty of Communication and Arts of the Nebrija University in Madrid.

The aim of the conference is to present the results of two phases of the research work carried out by the RTVE-UAB Chair on different aspects of artificial intelligence applied to journalism. The first phase refers to the pre-alert tools that exist from the moment a newsworthy event occurs until the journalist or newsroom is aware of what has happened and decides to cover the story. The second focuses on the use of automatic text writing tools.

The seminar also seeks to reflect on the possibilities of applying AI in these two phases through the participation and intervention of journalists, technologists, researchers and academic experts in the field.

The day’s programme is divided into two parts, one in the morning where presentations will be given on news detection using artificial intelligence and automatic news writing, and another in the afternoon in collaboration with Red Innonews where sessions will be held on AI related to journalism, audiences, participation and the role it plays in the training curriculum for future journalists.

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and RTVE began this new line of collaborative research in 2019 and intend to extend the project for another year.
