Sustainable Journalism for the Algorithmic Future

Sustainable Journalism for the Algorithmic Future: The project supported by the Helsingin Sanomat Foundation (2020-22) investigates how data-driven media practices and the increased influence of IT industries on media business affect journalism and its role in the public sphere. Integrating new evidence from a hybrid media system (Russia) into a comparative study, it helps understand the context-specificity of this impact and will formulate a vision on making journalism societally, economically and ethically sustainable for the algorithmic future.
