When: 15-16 November 2017

What is it?
The organisers label News Xchange as “the news industry’s most provocative and most insightful experience.” It brings together news executives, journalists, presenters, bloggers and start-up entrepreneurs from around the world with experts from other fields such as scientists, artists and thought leaders. A main aim of the two-day event is to share and discuss ideas and the status quo of the news industry. Furthermore, trends and developments are shared in order to shape and prepare for the future of the news business.
The full programme of the conference can be found here.
Why are we there?
We are participating in News Xchange to:
- find out more about the state-of-play in the news business;
- showcase our platform for collaborative verification Truly.Media;
- discuss potential cooperation opportunities in the context of our research activities (especially relating to current and future projects);
- do a lot of networking.
A number of Deutsche Welle staff is going to be present at the event, among them Guido Baumhauer, DW’s Director of Distribution, Marketing & Technology. Guido will lead an interview with Sisonke Msiman in the Q&A session “Statues & Flags: The Role of the Media in Polarised Societies”, at 5 pm on Wednesday.

After 15 months of development, with around 15 people involved and about 15 organizations testing it and providing feedback, Truly Media is finally entering the commercial market. The Google DNI project, formerly known as Verify Media and carried about by DW’s Research & Cooperations Projects (DW Innovation) and ATC’s iLab, has come to a successful end. The result of all this effort is a commercial verification platform that allows journalists to aggregate and verify User-Generated-Content (UGC) in real-time. A key asset: all this can be done collaboratively.

No worries: The summer break is long over. It only took us a while to write a thorough Fader update post. Because everybody in the consortium (DW Innovation, Euronews, Vragments) has been really busy.
We – or more precisely: the alpha geeks among us — gave the editor/platform a couple of cool new features. We also attended and/or hosted several interesting VR/360 events in the last couple of months. And we made sure Fader won’t run out of fresh content anytime soon.
Here’s a quick overview of what we’ve achieved since the beginning of August.

When creating new digital tools and systems for journalists, there are usually two main challenges: The first is to design and develop new functions and interfaces. The second is to understand and act on the business issues associated with the emerging product. This post is about the second challenge – which sometimes seems more difficult to tackle. Or even tends to be overlooked.

VR Conference = a one day event that brings together all kinds of VR enthusiasts (journalists, storytellers, media innovators, techies) to share experiences and seek inspiration. This is much more structured and focused, and you will need to purchase a ticket.
