New digital technologies are remaking the way we live, changing the way passengers and goods move and services are provided. They hold out the hope of numerous benefits for consumers and cities by making transactions more efficient while increasing accessibility, variety, and convenience for consumers. At the same time, it is clear these outcomes won’t automatically come about without the right policies in place to guide their development and adoption. As a result, numerous debates have arisen around how to ensure that the costs and benefits of these new technologies are equitably shared.
About the Talk
"Fraud, Hacking, and Stupid Voters: How Partisan Media Contribute to Delegitimizing Election Narratives"
The Annenberg School for Communication is pleased to invite graduating seniors, along with their friends and family, to its Communication Major Graduation Ceremony on May 19, 2019.
The average American adult spends much of their waking hours looking at a screen, and concerns abound about the ever-increasing role technology plays in our lives. This talk advocates for the role of research — social science in particular — in making technology more human-centered.
The World Bank-Annenberg Summer Institute is designed for leaders, strategists, and advisors who want to strengthen the critical communication skills required to support change agents and reform initiatives in developing countries.
The Screening Scholarship Media Festival (SSMF) provides a creative, collaborative space to explore the affordances and challenges of multimodal strategies in research, and to interrogate their social implications. SSMF is a hybrid between a traditional academic conference and a film/media festival that fosters the intersection of art and science across disciplines since 2013.

Has Donald Trump, his presidential campaign and his Twitter feed transformed American media, or has he simply revealed transformations that were already well underway? And if there is no way of “changing it back,” how should we attempt to reform the media going forward?
Co-sponsored with the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy
The Securing MediaMakers Forum explores the growing need for security -- ranging from data encryption to legal teams to protected work environments -- among investigative journalists and documentary filmmakers. While this is an historical issue, panelists address these issues in the contemporary context, calling out First Amendment erosions brought by the Trump administration and his sanctioning of threats and contempt for journalists and political opponents.
