Why algorithms will define our lives soon and what that means for the media industry

2018-04-12 14:00:00 2018-04-12 15:15:00 Europe/Rome Why algorithms will define our lives soon and what that means for the media industry #ijf18 Gli algoritmi hanno ormai un impatto decisivo su ciò che le persone sanno del mondo, su quali informazioni vedono e su quali non vedono. Questo scenario è anche una sfida per giornalisti e testate. Discuteremo quali competenze i media tradizionali devono portare nelle redazioni per trattare questi aspetti, ma anche come gli stessi possono usare gli algoritmi in modo responsabile e trasparente. Due aspetti saranno centrali: in che modo le testate assicurano che gli algoritmi impiegati o creati non abbiano effetti collaterali non voluti, e quali nuove competenze sono necessarie alle redazioni per avere un dibattito informato sulle decisioni che passano per gli algoritmi. Organizzato in collaborazione con Fjum. Palazzo Sorbello - Perugia

Algorithms are the new gatekeepers. They are having an impact what people know about the world, which information they see and what they do not see. This is also a challenge for journalists and media organizations. We will discuss which knowledge media organizations need to build in the newsroom to cover such issues, but also how news organizations can use algorithms in a responsible and transparent way. Two aspects will be important for this panel: How can news organizations ensure that the algorithms they are using or creating do not have unintended side effects and also which new skill-sets are necessary in today’s news rooms to be able to have an informed debate about the societal challenges of algorithmic decisions.

Organised in association with Fjum.
