News has always had the power to create shared experiences and opportunities for understanding. Yet the proliferation of digital platforms and new tools has demonstrated its overwhelming ability to fracture and segment us. Indeed, the disruptive forces of technology innovation have challenged every aspect of the practice and business of news journalism. Amid these changes in the digital era, we have a unique opportunity to help shape the create a future of news with intention to restore trust, build shared understanding, preserve the vital role of the free press in our society, and empower citizens to help shape a better future.
How has technology impacted the accessibility, independence, plurality, relevance, reliability, quality and reach of news? How might news and these factors be improved through the application of current and emerging technologies into the future?
As a leading cultural institution with an extensive community at the intersection of technology and society, CHM, with a growing circle of partners, is launching a three-part program to explore the future of news. The first phase convenes by invitation thought leaders to identify and frame critical issues around which we can build an actionable agenda. Phase two will bring people together to work on specific issues with a focus on meaningful and actionable outcomes. Finally, in the third phase, CHM will host an event to share what has been learned with a broader community of interest.
These three phases will be tied together with content intended to make the process and learning transparent and available while endeavoring to enrich understanding of the issues critical to a more positive and human-centric future of news.
9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
