April 2018

In a nutshell

April’s Edito

#1 Scale up AI
The French government has unveiled a series of new initiatives and a €1.5 billion plan that seeks to make the country a global leader in the field of artificial intelligence research and innovation, dominated by the United States and China. Prior to that, the French president Emmanuel Macron has asked the mathematician and Fields Medal winner Cédric Villani to conduct extensive researches and the government’s strategy is largely based on his report entitled “AI for Humanity”. France has always been recognized internationally for its scientific excellence, AI and machine learning are not new topics for French researchers. Let’s wait and see.

#2 Prevent fake news!
An expression popularized during the American elections and often exploited for political or economic purposed, has already been munch in the news and do not seem to stop. Companies are obviously not immune to this. Last week Wellcom has taken part in a conference organized by French Public Relations network Syntec Conseil en Relations Publics in the framework of the PR Lab 2018 “Which antidote to fake news” to discuss the importance of trust and reputation.

The first panel discussion Reputation Trend featured speakers such as Arnaud Mercier (Institut Français de Presse), Audrey Herblin-Stoop (Twitter) and Grégoire Lemarchand (AFP) to discuss about fake news, their origin and impact.

The second panel discussion Reputation Power then brought together Maxime Drouet (Burson-Marsteller), Sylvain Cavalier (Youtuber) and other communications professionals who intended to answer the questions “what to do when affected by fake news?” and “how to prevent fake news?”.

Spring is back in Paris, our activity also flourishes in the right direction since the beginning of 2018, more news to discover in this spring edition of Wellnews international.

The Data debate in 2018

Due to the European and national regulatory debates (personal data law, transposition of the NIS directive, and application of the RGPD), the topic of Data remains in the heart of the news feed in 2018, but with a certain confusion.

In order to shed light on this major topic, Syntech Numérique, the professional union of digital services companies has launched a series of debates called “The great debate of Data” to deliver better understanding on this industrial revolution. During this event, public decision-makers, elected officials, entrepreneurs and civil society will come together and get their opinions expressed.
