Digital Society is an innovation network project funded by the Danish Council for Science and Education. The aim is to bring students, researchers, companies and organisations closer to each other and enhance collaboration and knowledge sharing. Specifically, we collaborate on three grand challenges in the digital society: Data Sharing & Privacy, Survival of Quality Content and Algorithmic Operation and Control.
During the fall of 2017 a group of students from the Master’s degree programme in Media Science worked challenging task of how to convey these grand challenges in the best possible way. Through an analyse of the three grand challenges Morten, Michela, Nanna, Sofie & Line decided that their project should focus on the grand challenge of Survival of Quality Content.
This is a challenge that we face in today’s society, as a result of the increasing amount of content that the average user of different platforms is faced with on a daily basis. The group produced a video that raises questions of how big companies influence the filtering of our searches and thereby what content we are presented with. They end the video by asking the question of how this can affect the survival of quality content in the digital society of today.
Digital Society are grateful that Morten, Michela, Nanna, Sofie & Line wanted to take on the project of communicating this grand challenge, and are proud to present the result, which can be seen bellow.
