The social fabric of cyberspace is as important as the physical world. From commerce to sex, every interaction is mirrored online. Traditional media feel left behind by bloggers, social media, and the race into cyberspace – but that race has just begun. The next-generation news organisation will be agile and smart. It will apply the trusted techniques of traditional journalism to the online world. Speed is just as important as accuracy – and both can be won.
The SecDev training programme considers how journalism has changed, and offers solutions for media professionals to break the news without compromising credibility and integrity in a real-time digital age.
This event is in partnership with BBC World Service.
Cyber pioneer Rafal Rohozinski will be joining us in conversation with Robin Pembrooke, head of product at BBC News Online, to explore what the next generation news organisation will look like and the techniques and technology that they will be using. We will be discussing the possibilities they present as well as the challenges in ensuring the validity and accuracy of content.
The event will follow a day long workshop on Monday 19 May, for details see here.
We will be joined by a panel working on the edges of the news to get the stories where conventional means have failed. They will be talking about the technology and the techniques that they use, looking at how content is verified, and how you can empower people to tell their own stories and distribute it to local and international communities.
