Description

Description

Global Alliance for Media Innovation is the network for innovation within the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA). WAN-IFRA’s members are located in over 120 countries and have a combined reach of more than 18,000 publications, 15,000 online sites and 3,000 companies. Following the launch of the Global Alliance for Media Innovation during WAN-IFRA’s World Congress in June 2014, we have established a brain trust of stakeholders involved in research and innovation for news media. The core of this group is composed of pioneers, media organisations (publishers and suppliers), and academic research labs dealing with technology transfer and research programmes in Europe (Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, UK), the Americas (Brazil, USA, Canada), and Southeast Asia (Singapore, Japan). The Alliance was formed because its members all believe that our industry requires a reliable flood of new technologies, products and business models. We see the future of news media being invented right now, all around the globe, by hundreds of different companies, universities and entrepreneurs. But their separate efforts, research, prototypes and rollouts receive inconsistent attention and analysis. Many good ideas fail simply due to a lack of development support, while others get hyped beyond their real value. Vital lessons and examples are not being widely enough or rapidly enough disseminated. GAMI focuses on five main topic areas relevant to the future of news media companies, news professionals, and news consumers: New platforms/distribution channels: mobility, wear-ability, the Internet of Things (smart cities, connected homes, connected cars, connected devices); New forms of narrative and storytelling: immersive content, VR, 360° video, social media; Data exploration: big data, data visualisation, automatic generation of content; Technology enablers: privacy, security; Multiple media convergence: interoperability, standards (IPTC, etc.) GAMI is guided by an Advisory Board representing news media or media labs, suppliers, research centres, universities, technology clusters and accelerators.

The media industry requires a reliable flood of new technologies, products and business models. The future of news media being invented right now, all around the globe, by hundreds of different companies, universities and entrepreneurs. But their separate efforts, research, prototypes and rollouts receive inconsistent attention and analysis. Many good ideas fail simply due to a lack of development support, while others get hyped beyond their real value. Vital lessons and examples are not being widely enough or rapidly enough disseminated.
GAMI is a network, an ecosystem, that includes Media, Universities and R&D centers and that aims to create partnerships between these institutions to encourage Research in the news media field. The idea is to bridge the gap between research and industry within the specific domain of news media.
In order to create these bridges we use this common online platform: www.media-innovation.news but also industry events where we organise matchmaking opportunities, workshops and conference sessions about what research is in the works. The relation with digitization is to keep media as competitive as it used to be even facing the digital challenge.


Information now flows through our lives 24/7, but how much of it is quality journalistic material ?
Journalists and media companies are finding it difficult to tackle the challenge of new technology while at the same time producing reliable news informations. More than ever, reporters must select, verify and account for their facts.
INJECT was created to help Journalists in their day to day jobs. INJECT is a digital tool that goes beyond conventional search engines. It makes creative search techniques and explanatory background fast and easy to use for enriched reporting. INJECT, when fully developed will be available for any journalist of news room globally to help media, and more generally reliable information and democracy in our societies.
The relation with digitization is to keep online news as a high quality journalistic news source.
