Managing Collective Intelligence in Open Journalism: Power, Knowledge and 

Tanja Aitamurto, Stanford Engineering

October 16, 2014 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Open to the public.
No RSVP required


Collective intelligence is channeled to journalism by crowdsourcing and 
co-creation. While the crowd contributes to the journalistic process with 
its knowledge, the crowd also challenges journalistic norms and ideals. In 
her talk, Dr. Aitamurto shows how collective intelligence impacts knowledge 
search in journalism, alters power structures in society, and functions as 
a basis for value creation.


Dr. Tanja Aitamurto is a Brown Fellow and the Deputy Director at the Brown 
Institute for Media Innovation at the School of Engineering at Stanford, as 
well as a Liberation Technology alumna. Her research focuses on the 
applications of collective intelligence in journalism, governance, and new 
product design in media innovations. She is the author of the book 
"Crowdsourcing for Democracy: New Era in Policy-Making", and she has 
published in New Media & Society, Digital Journalism and Design Issues.
