J-Talks Live - Fast Forward: Trust, Tech and the Media

Jan. 26, 2021 - It’s all happening—and happening fast across the media spectrum: digital transformation, diversification of newsrooms and efforts to engage the diverse communities media organizations seek to serve.

How can innovations in today’s technology be applied to reach various audiences? Particularly, can technology from the gaming world be deployed to our digital-first storytelling future?

Join Sandra Clark, vice-president for news and civic dialogue at WHYY, the public media organization serving the Philadelphia region, Nadine Ajaka, senior producer of visual forensics with The Washington Post, and Kristopher Alexander, assistant professor with a focus on video games at the RTA School of Media at Ryerson University, in a virtual conversation with host Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the podcast More.
