Work of a Fellow
What I think makes Stanford special is its commitment to frame these courses as project-based efforts to find real solutions.
My aim is to research existing and emergent tools that identify digital manipulations to help media vet and verify images before publishing.
How do we bridge the digital divide? And can technology be leveraged to find users who are not in the market for news and information?
Instead of going to the candidates and talking to them about their agendas, we flipped it. We made a public call: We’re coming to your neighborhood. Show us what needs fixing.
I see a great opportunity for the different communities under the Latino umbrella to learn more about each other.
When hackers regularly bamboozle the IT departments of multinational corporations, my challenge is to determine how a lone player like myself can maximize my utility in this online battle.
It is very helpful to think of all the different ways one can try to solve a problem. Suddenly, I don’t see three doors open but seven or eight.
Because China is so big, the Internet would be a good place to collect stories of changes in the social life of everyday people.
I recently had the opportunity to share, from afar, my Knight innovation proposal with a conference of international media and NGOs that met in Bucharest.
Arriving here as journalists, we Knight Fellows start quickly diving into the energy of the place. Collaborate, fail fast, iterate. And network in ways like never before.
The goal is to create a model for an entirely community-driven, crowd-sourced investigative project.
Exclusive! Scoop! That’s what journalists live for. Information is guarded until the project is published. But that doesn’t work for projects involving journalism innovation.
Do I see value in believing you really can change yourself, your thinking, your actions? That the future of journalism can actually be bright and exciting? Yup.
Changes in reading habits, economic challenges, new technical possibilities: it’s an ideal situation for media companies to promote innovation and remain relevant in a changing world.
Chloe Veltman introduces her first “live, immersive event” linked to her radio show VoiceBox, about the human voice and music.
Datafest not only produced interesting analytical results, it also illuminated possible ways forward for data journalism.
The requirement that Knight Fellows come to Stanford with a proposal to improve journalism forces one to think outside the box. And when they get here, they get to think again.
The Arab Spring, as difficult and as bloody as it has been, has created enormous local interest in news, contributing to a thriving news business overall.
Citizen journalists, many of whom come from communities ignored by the media, are able to access spaces and people in the community that are rarely featured in critical national debates.
“The Future of the Automobile” class quickly became one of my favorites because of the focus on addressing industry challenges with creative solutions.
Claudia Nuñez takes a virtual reality trip in Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, and discovers that the real world is changing faster than she thought.
