New Media

The New Media Center will address the automated customization and targeting of online advertising; creation of new forms of smart media to augment traditional publishing and journalism; acquisition and analysis of data from social media; and extraction of useful information from online multimedia, including text, speech, video, and images. Columbia has a long track record of startups in the new media field, including Newsblaster, MPEG, Dygest, and Musically Intelligent Machines, among others and the Engineering School is already partners with the Graduate School of Journalism on an innovative dual-degree in Journalism and Computer Science. This Center will be housed on the Morningside campus.
