Innovation and entrepreneurship are the new pillars of journalism education

Innovation and entrepreneurship are the new pillars of journalism education | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
"The profession we are teaching for is losing more and more of its former power and we cannot be sure if what we are teaching today will have relevance in the news market tomorrow. One of the fundamental issues of our profession as educators is that we are simply lacking knowledge about our field. Most of what we know about our profession as journalism educators is best-practice examples and most of what we do in our programs is trial-and-error. This may not be enough anymore," said Dr. Michael Harnischmacher from the University of Trier, Germany who was presenting at the parallel panels session Thursday afternoon.

Robots Will Steal Our Jobs, But They’ll Give Us New Ones

Robots Will Steal Our Jobs, But They’ll Give Us New Ones | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Humans must build these machines and program them and repair them. But they must also train them. This is true of “deep learning” AI, and it’s true of robots like Baxter. Baxter must be programmed to perform certain tasks, and that involves physically moving his limbs back and forth.

As has happened to many middlemen before it, Uber is about to get cut out by a bootstrapped challenger backed by the under-fire incumbents - the taxi industry.  It's called Arro. And
