New Interactions With News


Alexis Lloyd, The New York Times

Session Type: Presentation

What impact do emerging technologies have on news publishers? How will users be interacting with journalism and media in 2, 5, or 10 years? What kinds of interfaces will facilitate deep, immersive and engaging interactions with content? Alexis Lloyd, a Creative Technologist in The New York Times Company’s Research & Development Lab, will explore these and other questions. In addition, she will discuss the research being done in the Company’s R&D lab on new interactions with news across a variety of platforms and devices, including mobile interfaces, content in the living room, ambient interactivity using sensors and more.
