Successful Models for Platforms and Media Corporations, Journalism Caught in Credibility Dilemma, Storytelling in VR and AR, Algorithms, Artificial Intelligence 

On 8 May, MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin, Berlin’s and Brandenburg’s media congress, is starting for the fourth time at STATION Berlin, at the same time as re:publica. Over the course of three days, participants have a choice of keynote speeches, discussions and fireside chats on current topics of digital media society, the media market as well as media and Internet politics. In addition to that, regional startups and media innovation projects are presenting their ideas, developments and business models at MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin. Through workshops, visitors can both practically and personally engage in discussions on specific media society subjects. Among the questions covered are: "What is really behind the general terms and conditions we so often just click to disappear?", or "What data am I surrendering, for example, when I use Google or social networks like Twitter and Facebook?"
The Topics of MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin 2017 (#MCB17) are:
  • New models for success: How platforms, media corporations and startups are strengthening their brands
  • Journalism caught between credibility dilemma and big data: How to preserve plurality of opinion
  • Artificial intelligence and algorithms: How machines are shaping our media world
