The 5G impact on media *
This event will be in-person at Media City Bergen and streamed here on Sched. 

How 5G will impact media and entertainment - and how can Content production utilize from 5G professional services? In this session, Morten Brandstrup (TV 2 Denmark) will demonstrate how 5G could be used in professional high-end production. You will get learnings from 5G-RECORDS, a Horizon2020 EU funded project, where a consortium with more than 18 partners, including BBC, RAI, EBU and TV 2 Denmark, run 3 use-cases.

The Nordic 5G Consortium will also bring updates of activities we now see in the Nordic 5G landscape for broadcasters.

08:30 - 09:00 - Registration

09:00 - Welcome by Ketil Moland Olsen

Vegard Vaage (Netsecurity): Using UK intelligence tools for fun and profit

Tired of chaining yet another set of scripts to figure out some annoying data format? Need to convert from binary data to readable text but you don't know how to code? Have you found some data that _looks_ exciting but with no idea what it actually is? Do you need to base64-decode a dataset, ROT-13 decrypt and split the results by 希, with no time to hack together a tool? Get an introduction to an amazingly useful data analysis and processing tool from British Signals Intelligence (GCHQ).

Sergej Stoppel (Wolftech): You don't need drugs to hallucinate, sometimes data is just enough

Especially in recent years, we associate misinformation with fake news, but often misinformation arises from bad data communication. While data in itself appears to be objective and precise, its presentation, framing and comparisons can be used to spin different narratives, lead to different insights and thus decision making. Deliberately or not, even experts can fail when communicating their data. In this talk we will analyse historic examples of data miscommunication, identify some of the commonly made mistakes, and finally discuss a framework to help you avoid these mistakes.

10:15-10:30: Break

Anders Grimsrud Eriksen & Lasse Lambrechts (Bergens Tidende): How not to fall on your face while working with data

Do you really know how you ended up with those results after analyzing the data from a Public Source? How can you do the exact same analysis over and over again on different batches of data? How do you explain to curious readers and editors exactly how we ended up with those numbers or that graph? Anders and Lasse will teach you the way of keeping track of your data journalism using notebooks and project scaffolding.

Jenny Wiik (University of Gothenburg): Exploring the intersection of journalistic innovation, big data and collaborations – some current trends

The genres of data- and investigative journalism are constantly pushing the boundaries for what journalism can do and what it should be. While the core values seem to stay intact new methods arise, and new kinds of collaborations and tech solutions emerge. But will this development have an impact on news business in general, and in that case how? Taking off from her research on AI and journalism Jenny Wiik will pick up on some of the key tendencies in this area and discuss their relevance for the broader field of journalism.

11:45-12:45: Lunch

Anders Norås (Avanade): Marvels of Teenage Engineering

Since the dawn of the microcomputer era, kids have been wonderstruck by the amazing things computers can do. Some of these kids went on to write groundbreaking programs pushing their computers way beyond the limits of what their computers were designed for. In this talk Anders Norås tell the previously untold stories of these Marvels of Teenage Engineering. We’ll get to see vintage code on vintage computers using black magic programming tricks so advanced that they will amaze even the most seasoned developers.

Maria Gargiulo (HRDAG): Missing data challenges in human rights research

Collecting data on human rights violations in conflict settings is difficult and dangerous, and the data that results is often incomplete on multiple levels. Some victims’ stories are never recorded, and those whose stories are documented may still be missing critical information about the victim, the perpetrator, or other contextual details about the violation. Furthermore, the data that is documented may not be statistically representative of the victim population as a whole. Drawing population-level inferences from this data without correcting for the missingness risks incorrectly answering questions about patterns of violence. This talk will introduce three different families of statistical methods—record linkage, multiple imputation, and multiple systems estimation—which can be used to address the types of missing data commonly encountered in human rights research. When combined together, these methods can be used to draw population level inferences about patterns of violence that are statistically valid and include a measure of uncertainty.

Espen Andersen (Kommunal Rapport): Data supported journalism in practice

Who was the first person in history to use the computer to improve journalism? It happened earlier than you might think. In this presentation, we'll tour the history of data journalism and look closer at how computer programming enables us to create journalism that would otherwise have been impossible to do.

14:00 - Break

Eirik Solheim (NRK Beta): This is how we verified videos from Ukraina

Sam Fulwood III (American University School of Communication): Winning with Data: Tracking Insurrection to the Pulitzer Prize

Sam Fulwood III will share how a team of American University students created and maintained a data base to track the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol. Their efforts contributed to The Wash

Stavanger: Mediebyen Stavanger – Se hva som rører seg (NO)*
Dette arrangementet streames her på Sched og i Dallucci i Media City Bergen.

Over 20 av Medieklyngens medlemer har tilhold i Stavanger og omegn. I denne sesjonen får du vite mer om noen av de mange prosjektene som har sitt utspring i Rogaland – sendt direkte som en TV-sending fra Skylight Studios i Sandnes.

Elin Stueland fra Stavanger Aftenblad leder sendingen.

Byas: 
Hvordan dytte de unge inn i debatten?
Det er mange grå hår og doktorgrader i debattspaltene. Hvordan skaper vi plass til de med håret intakt? Stavanger Aftenblad satser nå på unge skribenter og videokronikker i håp om å gjøre avisa til det første stedet unge lesere uttrykker meningene sine.

Å svare på unges små og store spørsmål
Hvorfor henger kondomene så ofte bak kassen? Hva er greia med at regjeringen vil forby "lootbokser"? Spørsmålene som pirrer nysgjerrigheten til de unge, og som faktisk utgjør praktisk en forskjell i livene deres, er ofte sære og spesifikke. Likevel må noen finne svarene! Intet spørsmål er for lite eller for stort for Byas sjekker-konseptet - infotainment på sitt beste og verste!

Cowboyen og kongen: Hvordan treffe kresne TV-seere med innhold fra det rurale Norge
NRK Rogaland og Screen story i Stavanger gir en sniktitt inn i arbeidet med en TV-serie som kommer til høsten. NRK har et godt grep om urbane seere med mastergrad. Men utenfor storbyene og ikke minst blant yngre, står det litt dårligere til. Hvilke grep kan gjøres for å nå de som mange vil nå, men som allerede har sine favoritter.
Prosjektleder for NRK, Otto Voldsund forteller om innsiktsarbeidet som ligger til grunn, mens seniorredigerer Tommy Jørpeland fra Screen story forteller om grepene i klipperommet som må til for å nå målsettingene.

Screen Story - hvordan lykkes som aktør i regionen?
Produksjonsselskapet Screen Story Film og TV hadde i januar i år 2 store dokumentarserier parallelt på TV. "Mullaen og Meling" ble vist på NRK, og "Katastrofen Kielland" ble vist på Tv2. Nå utvikles et nytt prosjekt i et spennende samarbeid med Altibox. Screen Story har avdelinger i bl.a Stavanger og Bergen, og samarbeider også mye på tvers av avdelingene. Gjør det at man stiller sterkere i konkurranse med de store aktørene 'inni Oslo'?

Time and Date forbindes kanskje helst med kalendre, klokka, tidssoner, diverse kalkulatorer, men hvorfor har vi begynt å jage sol- og måneformørkelser?

Status Mediebyen Stavanger
Arbeidet med å etablere en medieby i Stavanger etter modell av Media City Bergen, er et langt steg nærmere realisering. Denne uken starter den politiske behandlingen av reguleringsplanen for Nytorget i Stavanger sentrum. Samtidig er de første leietakerne, NRK og Schibsted/Stavanger Aftenblad, i sluttforhandlinger med utbygger. Dersom alt går etter planen, vil Mediebyen Stavanger stå innflyttingsklart sommeren 2025. Distriktsredaktør i NRK Rogaland, Ragnar Christensen, gir oss siste nytt om prosjektet.

Statsraad Lehmkuhls jordomseiling One Ocean Expedition: Fra skoleskip til forskningsfartøy (NO)*
Statsraad Lehmkuhl er nå halvveis ut i den 20 måneder lange jordomseilingen One Ocean Expedition, som vil ta skipet til 36 ulike byer over hele kloden. Det 108 år gamle seilskipet er utrustet med moderne høyteknologisk måleutstyr som kontinuerlig samler inn forskningsdata om bl.a. CO₂-nivå, mikroplast, temperatur, forsuring, lyder fra patterdyr og havstøy. Akkurat nå befinner skipet seg midt i Stillehavet med 90 studenter fra Universitet i Bergen om bord. Studentene har havet som klasserom når de gjennomfører et fire måneders kurs om bærekraft og klima, der de også skal besøke flere øyer i Stillehavet, som er særlig utsatt for klimaendringer.

Hva er det som gjør en 108 gammel seilskute spesielt egnet for havforskning? Og hvorfor sender UiB sine studenter til andre siden av kloden for å studere om bord på et skip i Stillehavet?

One Ocean Expedition seiler under FN-flagg og er en offisiell del av FNs Havtiår. Målet er å skape oppmerksomhet og dele kunnskap om hvor viktig havet er for en bærekraftig fremtid.

Oslo: De unge – hvordan når vi dem? (NO)*
Dette arrangementet finner sted i Pressens Hus (Oslo) og streames her på Sched og i restauranten i Media City Bergen.

Hvordan når vi egentlig de unge voksne med journalistikken vår? Dette er fortsatt en av bransjens store og uløste problemer. Er det teknologi som er løsningen, eller nye former for historefortelling som skal til? Eller en kombinasjon av begge?

Flere mediehus har gjort spennende eksperimenter for å nå den unge og høythengende målgruppen, og i denne sesjonen for vi møte et knippe av dem.

Arrangementet ledes av Trine Ohrberg fra MBL.

DN: innsikt + teknologi + innhold = ung-suksess

TV 2: Reality Check – Slik kartla TV 2 unge forbilder
Havner realitykjendiser oftere på kant med loven enn andre?
Etter å ha dekket en rekke enkeltsaker der profilerte realitydeltakere sto tiltalt i alvorlige staffesaker, begynte TV 2s krimjournalister å kartlegge straffehistorikken til deltakerne i populære realityprogrammer med unge seere. Hvordan vektlegges straffehistorikk i castingprosessen? Og hvordan følges unge mennesker som over natten blir rikskjendiser opp? Disse spørsmålene ble starten på en omfattende kartlegging av et miljø som aldri før har blitt undersøkt systematisk i offentligheten. I denne sesjonen forteller journalistene bak prosjektet hvordan de jobbet for og med en ung målgruppe.

NRK: De unge nyhetsunnvikerne – slik når vi dem
18 prosent av unge mellom 16 - 24 år defineres som nyhetsunvikere ifølge Mediebarometeret sin nyeste undersøkelse. Hvorfor er det slik at de enten bevisst eller ikke bevisst leser nyheter, og hva kan vi gjøre for å treffe denne målgruppen bedre? Det skal redaksjonsleder og programleder Bahare Viken fra NRK Nyheter Ung svare på. Hennes redaksjon jobber til daglig med å treffe denne målgruppen på tvers av plattformer som Snapchat, nrk.no og podkast.

VG: Journalistikk i 3D
Beskrivelse: Med stadig høyere ytelse i datamaskiner og mobiltelefoner kommer muligheter for rikere presentasjoner. 3D er én retning, blant flere, som kan løfte formidlingsevne — og forståelse — for både gjenstander, landskap og tidsakser.

The 2022 Holberg Masterclass: Technology and the Human Future*
Technologies are not merely tools for achieving necessary ends but a vehicle through which humans articulate and implement visions of the future.

For the 2022 Holberg Week we are offering scholarships for five PhD candidates from the Nordic countries to participate in a masterclass with the Holberg Prize Laureate.

Technologies reflect and materialize collective visions of good and desirable futures in contemporary societies. As such, they are both sites and objects of politics. This class explores how technologies assume the shapes they do, how they further or inhibit particular directions of progress, and how they help crystalize ideas of agency, responsibility and blame. Technological systems emerge from this perspective as integral to the constitutional commitments that governs modernity.

Each participant will be asked to prepare a 5-minute presentation related to the topic and reading list chosen by the Holberg Prize Laureate. After the presentations there will be a free discussion moderated by the Holberg Prize Laureate.


This event is a part of the Holberg Week, which this year takes place 7—10 June.

Streamlining media activities by the use of cognitive technologies*
This event will be in-person at Media City Bergen and streamed here on Sched.

AI will be the most important single factor that contributes to increased value creation in many industries. AI is easily explained and the systems ability to interpret and learn from external data so that it can adjust its own activity. By using various automated analysis tools, one can develop new models and optimize choices that will be virtually impossible for the human-driven brain.

Artificial intelligence has begun to change the way we work in virtually every industry, and every year we are more and more exposed to algorithms that drive better decisions, predictions, and processes. This provides enormous opportunities for companies to further develop business models and make existing processes in a better way. We will meet several organizations that have started their preparations to meet these future challenges and hear how Norwegian Cognitive Center a tool can be to meet the future of AI.

Agenda

  • Jenny Wiik, Associate Professor, the University of Gothenburg (20 min)
    Jenny is currently affiliated with the innovation hub Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg where she is running the research project ‘The automation of journalism. Innovation, collaboration, and knowledge management when implementing AI in news organizations’. The project aims to understand how news organizations work to manage various competencies, workflows, and (sometimes) conflicting goals in the process of automating journalism.
  • Lubos Steskal, Data Scientist, TV 2 (20 min)
    Exploring the many uses of embedding based textual similarity:
    Lubos will be showing how representing text/words as relatively low dimensional vectors (300 dimensions) "latent semantic" space allows for similarity identification beyond the matching of exact words and how this can be used to aid in the cold start problem for recommendation as well as grouping related content, generating document tags, and matching content across all of TV 2's content domains (streaming, TV news channel, tv2.no content).
  • Miguel Silva, Founder & CEO, Visualyst (20 min)
    In this session, an up-and-coming MCB backed startup called Visulayst will talk about how they are using artificial intelligence and machine learning to partial automate and streamline compliance reviews for the media industry.
  • Tom Skolbekken, Co-founder of UpFeed (20 min)
    Tom will share how deep learning and AI, kan help journalists improve viewing time and scroll-depth.   Using convolutional neural networks, machine learning and NLP, Upfeed has worked with linguists at various research institutions in Norway, US and UK to develop a new writing assistant.  Journalists get actionable feedback on how to improve their articles. It goes beyond words and sentences, and looks at structure, flow and style to optimise readability and meet reader expectations.

UiB MIX250 2022 Student Demo*
UiB MIX250 2022 students present their final bachelor’s projects about new AI and UX technologies for content analysis and production in journalism. They have explored new services for content analysis and production in journalism in collaboration with five Norwegian companies. 


And who will win the MVP Award?

At this event you can test out the five prototypes made by the bachelor students in Media and Interaction Design at UiB. A jury will give out the MVP Award for the first time! The five prototypes have been made in collaboration with the companies Factiverse, Future Solutions, Nagra Kudelski, NTB and Wolftech.


Schedule

12.00 - 12.05. Lars Nyre introduces the event.

12.05 - 12.15. The five groups present their project in the following order: MicroFact for Factiverse, VINK for Future Solutions, CheckMate for Nagra, NTB Byline and Wolftech Feeds. Read more about the projects below.

12.15 - 12.40. StudentDemo. The audience will be able to move from stand to stand and try out the prototypes, and talk to the students about the projects.

12.40 - 12.50. The jury, led by Geir Terje Ruud, announces the winner of the "MVP Award 2022". Read more about the award below.


The MVP Award 2022

The projects will be evaluated by an expert jury consisting of Geir Terje Ruud (independent consultant, formerly at NTB), Kristin Vatland (Director of Innovation Management at Nagra Kudelski), Sergej Stoppel (Director of Research And Innovation at Wolftech), Christen Hermansen (Project Manager at Future Solutions) and Gaute Kokkvoll (Product Manager at Factiverse) Kristin Vatland (Director of Innovation Management at Nagra Kudelski).

The jury assesses which project has the best chance of becoming a real product in the media industry - hence the title the "MVP Award" (minimum viable product). The winning group will receive flowers at the event, and will receive a gold-plated diploma in the mail later on.

The event will be hosted by UiB staff professor Lars Nyre. UiB teachers Tien Nguyen and Joao Ribeiro are responsible for the course, but they are away and Nyre will represent them. Master students Simon Ravndal Iden and Willem Percyval Westli have been assistant teachers.


MicroFact for Factiverse
MicroFact is a toolkit that provides an easy to use interface with automated AI to help journalists provide more context to articles where they feel the need to add it. Our goal is to give journalists the time to focus on writing, as well as give the reader a more in depth understanding.
Made by John Minh Le, Jonas Gripsrud Hjelmeland, Marie Søvik Bakkevold, Sebastian Taylor, Valerie Joanne Halvorsen and Vegard Ingebrigtsen Feste.

VINK for Future Solutions
VINK is a new tool for journalists that will change the way journalists communicate and connect with their readers! Working on a new case? Reach out to your audience by submitting queries and let the readers know exactly what kind of tip is wanted. Readers can easily submit tips in the app. The tip will then appear in the journalists Vink-platform - where all leads and incoming information is gathered for easy access!
Made by Anine Hamre Jakobsen, Christina Maria Osborne, Ellen Sofie Engen, Helene Høylandskjær, Julia Hellem Brandt, Julie Sofie Berntsen and Une Kristina Halvorsen.

CheckMate for Nagra
Consumers today unknowingly accept and share news, videos and articles, that may not be true. So how do we fix this? Together with Nagra Kudelski, we created Checkmate: A Chrome Extension that validates news sites, news articles, images and videos for the users while they are browsing. Several technical and ethical factors need to be carefully considered, our contribution to Nagra is the first of many steps toward a real solution to the challenge of misinformation. Nagra is currently working on the feasibility of Checkmate, which underlines that this project has real potential.
Made by Kristin Forsberg Dahle, Sigrid Hoddø Bakås, Susanne Ryland, Vendel Amalie Eikemo and Yara Corte-Real Mathisen.

NTB Byline
NTB Byline is an automatic article generator for journalists working at NTB. Byline elevates the basic tool that was used to generate covid-19 articles, enabling journalists at NTB, and in the future, all of Scandinavia, to generate hundreds or even thousands of automated articles from just one data source. The prototype takes the user through the journey of generating robot articles from start to finish. Byline allows journalists to choose datasets, edit the automatically generated articles and produce hundreds of articles that are ready for publishing within a few minutes. NTB Byline will free journalists from the mundane data-driven article-writing, and empower them to do the independent, investigative long-form journalistic work that drives society forward.
Made by Birgitte Strand, Even Sæbø Berntsen, Henrik Samset, Kamilla Wigestrand, Olivia Louise Glittenberg and Trine Mjaatvedt.

Wolftech Feeds
Wolftech Feeds is a segment of the Wolftechs NEWS tool which has now been improved beyond the current feed columns. The aim is to make journalists’ research process more organised and compelling while adding features to personalise the experience. The tool is now extended to include two new pages, a customisable dashboard based on widgets, and a discover page, including a list view and a map view. The current feeds page has been revamped. An intelligent AI search function based on entities and background information added to the search entities provides journalists with a fast way of keeping up with the subject.

Lifelogging applications and the GDPR – law students analyse TekLab students’ prototypes*
Join us and hear law students analyse experimental lifelogging prototypes that collect and process personal data. Can such prototypes ever be made GDPR compliant?

From 2021 the Faculty of Law at the University of Bergen has offered a project-based course called Privacy and Data protection - GDPR. At this course law students analyse innovative and often challenging prototypes developed by students at a course called Media Technology: Theory and development in Media City Bergen. The law students' aim is to assess whether those prototypes are GDPR compliant. If they are not, the question is how the emerging technology may be adjusted to meet the requirements set by law. This year the Norwegian and exchange law students have analysed two lifelogging applications that collect and process enormous amounts of personal data.

Schedule
The event takes place in the restaurant in Media City Bergen. Here is the link to the official FutureWeek presentation of the event.

14.00 - 14.10. Introduction by Malgorzata Cyndecka and Lars Nyre.

The three GDPR analyses

"Can “LesStress” survive the GDPR?" by Alessia Di Muro, Aslak Kasti Hyldmo and Catalina Sili.
LesStress is an application that aims to reduce the level of stress of its user. An application that everyone needs! Yet, what challenges and risks does it pose to data protection of its user and how can they be addressed? Selected issues concerning LesStress’ compliance with the GDPR will be presented.

Aslak Kasti Hyldmo is a student at the Faculty of Law at the University of Bergen. He wrote his master's thesis on the subject of Contact Tracing Applications and their compatibility with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Desinformasjon og falske nyheter truer sikkerhet og demokrati - hva er løsningen? (NO)*
Dette arrangementet finner sted i Atriet i MCB og streames her på Sched.

Spredningen av en økende mengde desinformasjon, konspirasjonsteorier, påvirkningsoperasjoner og såkalte «fake news» er i ferd med å bli et betydelig samfunnsproblem.

Fremveksten av alternative nyhetskilder bidrar til økt polarisering, konspirasjonsteorier og at tilliten til tradisjonelle medier og myndigheter svekkes.

Enkelte grupper i samfunnet er blitt vesentlige mer krevende å nå ut til med tradisjonell journalistikk og sannferdig informasjon.

I en rapport fra Medietilsynet rapporterer 44 prosent at de har fått «tilsendt eller har komme over falske eller usanne nyheiter» på nettet.


Hvordan påvirkes samfunn og demokrati av økende mengde desinformasjon og falske nyheter?
Finnes det en løsning på trusselen fra desinformasjon, konspirasjonsteorier, påvirkningsoperasjoner og såkalte «fake news», og i så fall hva er løsningen?

Innovation in the Newsroom*
This event will be in-person at Media City Bergen and streamed here on Sched.

Artificial intelligence (AI) in the newsroom is no longer a distant future dream. Robots are already collecting and verifying data, writing articles and adapting them to different target groups. But innovation in the newsroom is about so much more than technology. How do we ensure that we don't get lost in the bits and the bytes and keep our laser focus on the most crucial part – the readers, listeners and viewers? In this session, you will meet some of the most successful newsrooms in the industry. They will tell us more about how they are working hard to stay on top of this game.

Bergens Tidende: From fragmented news stories to curated news feeds with extra value
Traffic accidents, storms or a pandemic: A few years back these would have resulted in a bombardment of news articles - too many for the average reader to process. Live studios have solved this for many news sites. But they can do so much more! Learn how BT has developed their live studios to meet the needs of their readers.

SUJO: How we made Norway's largest newsroom
How do you get 68 of the country's smallest newsrooms to collaborate on one issue? Together with NRK and LLA (National Team for Local Newspapers), SUJO developed collaboration as a tool for journalistic innovation.

TV 2's production for Norwegian sports rights 2023-2030
How TV 2 is planning the production of 1050 multi-camera arena sports productions from 2023, a rollout of AI solutions to cover 6000 lower-tier games.

Adressavisen: How we made our data journalists into rock stars
Learn how Adresseavisen in Trondheim got the newsroom and the developers to fall in love and make beautiful award-winning content for its users. Head of editorial development at Adresseavisen, Christer S. Johnsen, takes us on a journey from when their developer and designer were integrated as a part of the daily newsroom – and how they are working today.

BBC: Creating and serving personalised content at BBC News
The BBC is currently migrating to a new modular content authoring system and new serving infrastructure that together will enable fully personalised experiences to be created and delivered to audiences at scale. This talk will provide an overview of that infrastructure and discuss how it enables practical, audience-focused innovation in stories, formats, curations and workflows.

ABC kurs i kunstig intelligens for media (NO)*
Norwegian Cognitive Center, Digital Norway og NCE Media inviterer til kurs som gir innføring i hva kunstig intelligens (KI) er, hvilke problemstillinger KI hjelper oss med å løse og hva vi trenger av ressurser, kompetanse og data for å utnytte potensialet til verdiskaping.

Kunstig intelligens (KI) gir enorme muligheter for norske bedrifter - både i produksjon og innovasjon, salg og markedsføring og i drift og vedlikehold. Skal vi utnytte disse mulighetene må vi øke grunnkompetansen vår om hva kunstig intelligens egentlig er.

Kunstig intelligens er ikke forbeholdt teknologiselskapet eller dataingeniøren. Det er når kunstig intelligens møter domenekunnskap og reelle problemstillinger at vi har størst mulighet til å skape faktisk verdi. Kurset tar sikte på å øke den grunnleggende kompetansen hos deg som ikke er teknolog – men som med noe kompetanseheving kan bli den som oppdager, definerer og kommuniserer problemstillinger som kan løses med KI.

Kurset vil dekke følgende spørsmål og tema:
  • Hva er KI?
  • Hvilke problemstillinger løser vi med KI?
  • Data og KI
  • Hvordan komme i gang med KI?
  • Hva trenger vi for å lykkes?
  • Eksempler og erfaringer fra klyngebedrifter

Lubos Steskal, Data Scientist, TV 2
Exploring the many uses of embedding based textual similarity:
Lubos will be showing how representing text/words as relatively low dimensional vectors (300 dimensions) "latent semantic" space allows for similarity identification beyond the matching of exact words and how this can be used to aid in the cold start problem for recommendation as well as grouping related content, generating document tags, and matching content across all of TV 2's content domains (streaming, TV news channel, tv2.no content).

Deltakelse og kostander
Kurset er åpent for alle og gratis for NCE Media medlemmer. For medlemmer utenfor klyngen koster det kr 1000 per person.

Kursholdere fra Digital Norway og Norwegian Cognitive Center
Kurset arrangeres av NCE Media i samarbeid med vårt senter for kunstig intelligens i SMB-virksomheter, Norwegian Cognitive Center, og Digital Norway. Foredragsholderne kommer fra sistnevnte.

UiB AI
UiB AI is a platform to coordinate, promote and make visible research, education and innovation initiatives in artificial intelligence at the University of Bergen, and to facilitate for collaboration and contact both between faculties of UiB and with partners and collaborators outside of UiB. For the session today we have two speakers that are representative of some of our activities.

Clemens Stachl is a visiting researcher from the University of St.Gallen. He combines psychology and AI in his research and will give you a taste of what that research looks like.

Truls Pedersen is a lecturer in the UiB's bachelor program in AI. This program started last semester and is the first AI bachelour in Norway. In his talk Truls will give you a taste of what the AI students get to learn at UiB.

The session will be introduced by Pinar Heggernes, the chair of the UiB AI steering group. Pinar is a professor in Informatics at UiB and the deputy rector of UiB for education and digitalisation. She will give an overview of the UiB AI activities and directions fot more AI knowledge at UiB.

Clemens Stachl: Traces of Ourselves - Opportunities and Challenges of Digital Behavioral Data for Research and Society
The progressing digitization of our society profoundly transforms how we as human beings communicate, interact with media, and make decisions. This transformation also gives rise to fundamentally new opportunities for research in the behavioral and social sciences. In the past, researchers were limited to study human behavior in laboratories and throw self-report questionnaires. Now it is possible to collect data on human behavior and contexts with consumer electronics in the real world. Machine learning provides the possibility to represent and model patterns of human life at unseen granularity and depth. In this talk I will present some of my own work on digital behavior and personality traits and discuss the unique possibilities and challenges of these developments for academia and industry alike.


Truls Pedersen: How to program a robot
Artificial agents and robots are concepts that make us think about a fantasy future. But you can build one in your living room for little. Getting the robot to do what you want or behave intelligently, that is the tricky part. The students in UiB’s AI bachelor program have been learning how to do it this semester. The talk will give a glimpse of this experience to the MCB Media Future attendants on how to do it. Robots not welcome, testing for humans will be done upon entry.

Ricki Sickenger: Moderne Retro-utvikling på Commodore 64
Programmering nå for tiden har blitt redusert til Jira-oppgaver, forutsigbare prosesser, og høynivå-språk. La oss ta et steg tilbake og se på hvordan man utvikler spill på en av meste solgte hjemmedatamaskinene noensinne. I dette foredraget vil Ricki fortelle om sin reise inn i moderne spillutvikling på den 40 år gamle Commodore 64.

Alexander Breidvik: Live streaming for dummies - Fra “The Horse in Motion” til livesport OTT
En introduksjon til live streaming OTT med utgangspunkt i TV 2s livesendinger på Play. Dette blir en historisk gjennomgang fra de første bilder i bevegelse til piksler og bits!

Sergej Stoppel: How to teach robots to draw
When we think about computers and art, we tend to think of two disjoint worlds. However, since the early days of computing, machines were used for art and imagery generation. In this presentation I will talk about my personal experience about the journey of algorithmic art.

Ketil Moland Olsen: Sensorer, data og historiefortelling
På kontoret, i boligen, i vår egen bukselomme og til og med i bosspannet – sensorene finnes i dag overalt. Og de spiller en nøkkelrolle i utviklingen av smarte byer, smartere hjem og et mer bærekraftig samfunn. Men visste du at sensordata også er et nyttig hjelpemiddel når de viktige historiene skal fortelles?

I denne presentasjonen ser vi nærmere på hvordan Tingenes Internett benyttes som et verktøy innenfor journalistikken. Vi får høre historien om hvordan slukkingen av en stor og uoversiktlig brann ble dokumentert mer presist ved hjelp av telemetriske lufttrafikkdata, og om hvordan hendelser i trafikken i fremtiden kan avsløres automatisk gjennom maskinsyn.

Tom Skolbekken, Co-founder of UpFeed
Tom will share how deep learning and AI, kan help journalists improve viewing time and scroll-depth. Using convolutional neural networks, machine learning and NLP, Upfeed has worked with linguists at various research institutions in Norway, US and UK to develop a new writing assistant.
