As a TV director, my research at Stanford University has three goals. First, I will explore how we would apply new technologies to the production and delivery of our contents. I am interested in any kinds of technologies that could be used our production, both software and hardware. AR, VR, UGC, Drone, and Mobile Journalism are all of interest. Second, I would like to know how innovation occurs here in Silicon Valley. Design thinking is one of the techniques I want to learn. Third, I would like to get a better sense of trends in EdTech, because education is one of our most important roles as a public broadcaster.
