Social search and virtual reality
On 16 July 2015, DW Innovation attended news:rewired, an event organised by journalism.co.uk in London. The one day conference focussed on the current state of affairs and future of journalism. Our Jochen Spangenberg gave a presentation and participated in a panel discussion in the session “Sourcing stories on social media.” His focus: verification of eyewitness media and what we do in our research project REVEAL.
Summing up, it can be said that participating in news:rewired was very worthwhile. We had the opportunity to network and exchange thoughts and ideas about the future of journalism and digital media. And it provided us with an excellent platform on which to showcase some of the Reveal work. For more details about the event please visit the REVEAL project homepage.
