About this talk

The importance of technology in the future of investigative reporting double-edged sword.

Role of technology in providing access to information but also in spreading misinformation and censoring media.

There was a danger that technology could be used to create obstacles for investigative journalists.

We may see armies of bots in the future who are capable of analyzing your social media information and have cogent arguments with people mimicking human beings. We’ll be competing against an increasingly sophisticated set of tools that are meant to spread propaganda to the public and it will be harder to hear our voice.
