About the Topics of the Panel
Journalism is currently confronted with central, forward-looking challenges. These include dealing with technological developments and the use of AI, while at the same time journalism must adapt to the needs of people. For users, it's about being able to better understand complex topics, regaining trust in reporting, and learning about new perspectives. For editorial teams, it's about counteracting the growing distrust of journalistic content with quality journalism. For society, it is a matter of repressing growing violence and aggression against journalists and media professionals. And for the future, it is about preserving the value of journalism with transparency and detailed fact checking.
