The Cybercultural Scene in Contemporary Journalism: Semantic Web, Algorithms, Applications and Curation

Elizabeth Saad Correa, Daniela Bertocchi


This paper discusses the different cybercultural aspects within contemporary journalism experiences,mainly from the emergence of the Semantic Web and the technical functionalities that result from it, such as the use of algorithms and applications. We explain the basic concepts of this technical set and it’s correlation to the Communication and Journalism fields particularly. The possibilities of approximation of this scene within journalistic activity are presented due to examples which are already in application with international journalistic markers. We come up with a configuration of the curation role for the professional that will act within this new cybercultural context.
