Description

UpSkill: Tech brings you 4 industry experts to share with you their journey within tech journalism and discuss: The Future, Fake News and things you can’t Google!

In an age of Photoshop, filters and social media, many of us are used to seeing manipulated pictures – subjects become slimmer and smoother or, in the case of Snapchat, transformed into puppies!This is the future of fake news! We’ve long been told not to believe everything we read, but soon we’ll have to question everything we see and hear as well.

Search technology is still in its infancy as it stands today, it’s essentially a set of algorithms for ranking results that meet certain criteria. It’s not very intelligent, intuitive or interactive. And it’s just beginning to develop the capability to interact on a rudimentary human level.


Our Panellists include:

Jessica Holland - Independent Journalist: The Guardian, BBC

Nikki Moore - Technology Writer/Presenter: Sony

Roop Gill – UK Editor: Upday

Joanna Goodman – Journalist/IT Columnist: Law Society Gazette/Guardian


The Panel will cover:

  • Insightful discussion around “The Future, Fake News & things you can’t Google”
  • Tips and advice to work within tech journalism and get in to the wider tech sector
  • Q & A with the panel

Join us for an exciting evening where you will also have a chance to network with our panel afterwards and continue the conversation.
