    During the past decade, with advances in digital technologies and rapid increase in the penetration of the internet, media has undergone a dramatic change in the manner in which news is gathered, disseminated and interpreted. There is an emphasis on speed, a premium on immediacy and virtually instant interpretation such as through Twitter. Traditional media, both print and electronic, are struggling to stay relevant and are themselves, adapting to and adopting the new technologies to create web-based news portals, mixing text and images to survive in this new environment, which is still in the throes of rapid change. The panel on “Unpacking Media – Digital & Traditional” will seek to explore and understand these changes and look to what the future may hold. We have outstanding journalists who have lived through this transition and those who have achieved success in the new media. They will share their rich and varied experiences with us.

    Title: Metamorphoses Talking Technology Vocabulary of The Digital


    Vocabulary of The Digital

    Keynote Speaker: Prof. K. Vijay Raghavan, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India


    Panelists: Shri Abhishek Pitti, Co-Founder & CEO, Nucleus Vision; Shri Anshul Tewari, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Youth Ki Awaaz; and Prof. Gagandeep Kang, Executive Director, Transnational Health Science Technology Institute


    The focus will be on the new and sometimes arcane vocabulary associated with the new digital technologies, which only the expert and the initiated understand. Language becomes an instrument of privileging knowledge and limiting understanding. It is important that we de-mystify digital jargon, narrow the gap between technology and its understanding among citizens and societies. An effort will be made to unpack concepts such as algorithms, blockchains, machine-learning, big data and artificial intelligence and explore their impact in different dimensions
