The second day of the 2018 Korean Press Foundation (KPF) Journalism Conference started with Knight Center for Journalism in Americas Founding Director Rosental Alves discussing ‘How Will Technologies Change Journalism.
The meeting was opened at the Korea Press Center in Seoul, Republic of Korea on Oct 30.
Mr Rosental Alvea’s proposition is that journalism must change by embracing digital technologies and fostering innovation and entrepreneurship as the only way to survive in this disruptive and chaotic environment.
Revolutions destroy the old faster than they build the new. The digital revolution is killing the media ecosystem of the industrial era and giving birth to the new media ecosystem of the digital era.
This mediacide is different from the newspaper to survive the radio and the radio to survive the television.
He said, journalism must change by embracing digital technologies and fostering innovation and entrepreneurship as the only way to survive in this disruptive and chaotic entertainment where we live. It’s an ambiguous, dual world-the old industrial media ecosystem still co-exists with the new, digital media ecosystem.
While we observe the devastating effects for newspapers, new models and new kinds of media organization are emerging and giving hope that the very long leave the newspaper.
An engagement reporter of Propublica Ms Ariana Tobin also discussed holding Facebook accountable: Crowd sourcing the Algorithms.
Despite its pivotal role in our democracy, Facebook and other powerhouse tech companies are astonishingly unacceptable. Guidelines for censoring hate speech are secret, and there’s no appeal for decisions to allow or delete controversial posts.
Corporate and political ads on the site have been invisible except to the carefully selected audiences they target.
This is a presentation about combining of technology and crowd-sourcing to identify patterns and important stories about how these powerful influences society.
