During the 74th edition of World News Media News Congress, Protecmedia, a leader in technological solutions for media companies, presented its innovative Artificial Intelligence (AI) based solutions from June 28-30. The event, held in Taipei, Taiwan, brought together leaders from media companies worldwide and featured prominent figures from the industry, including representatives from various Asian countries, Africa, the Middle East, India and others.
The World News Media Congress, organized by WAN-IFRA and presided over by Fernando de Yarza, who is also the president of Grupo HENNEO, is the most significant annual event for the media industry. Over three days, the Congress addressed key challenges facing the media industry in the current media landscape, including the rise of misinformation, the emergence of new players, and disruptive technologies transforming media workflows.
Protecmedia, mindful of the challenges faced by media companies in the digital era, has focused its efforts to meet the demands of Newsroom 3.0 in three fundamental areas: process automation, elimination of repetitive tasks, and seeking processes that enhance the product offered to readers — reliable information. To achieve these goals, the use of AI-based technologies is essential.
The company showcased several innovative solutions that can help newsrooms reduce time spent on minor and repetitive tasks, freeing up space for research, creativity and intuition in the creation of high-quality journalistic products.
