About

IT technologies are revolutionizing ways readers access and consume the information. The local press must innovate to meet its readers’ expectations and face the competition of free news sites and social networks.

AINews aims to introduce artificial intelligence (AI) into chatbot technologies dedicated to the press profession. AI will allow to personalize the news content for the reader, to interact with the readers through dialogue interfaces of the trendiest messaging applications, and to bring information back to the newspaper’s editorial board in order to dynamize their editorial departments.

Co-financed by Innosuisse, the AINews project will allow Djebots to implement a cutting-edge digital solution that may be used by La Liberté in order to cope with digital transformations and new trends of information consumption. La Liberté will be able to adapt its offer thanks to these technologies and explore new options to retain its readers.

Partnership

The project gathers the Institute of Complex Systems (iCoSys) of the HEIA-FR, the Institute for Digital Business of the HEG-FR, both members of the HES-SO, the company DjeBots, specialized in the development of chatbots solutions, and La Liberté, the daily newspaper of Fribourg.
