Abstract: This paper reports on an approach for new media and communication by using some cutting-edge technologies which are integrated in an intelligent robot. Intelligent media robot (iMRobot) is designed and developed for facilitating the media operations in the context of Media 4.0 where advanced technologies are used to upgrade and transform the traditional media industry into a smart generation. Some cutting-edge technologies are used for building the iMRobot which is specifically suitable for the media sector. A demonstrative implementation case is illustrated to show the feasibility and streamlined processes in Media 4.0 by using iMRobot's full functionalities. The ideas are significant to improve the modernisation of Media 4.0 in the future.

Keywords: new media; robot; Media 4.0; communication; artificial intelligence; information system.
