In this year-end edition of Recode Daily, we take a look ahead at 2017 and a look back at some of the best tech reporting of 2016.
Here are a few things Recode’s reporters and editors expect to see in the coming year:
- In tech: IPOs from Snapchat and Uber, a million drones in the sky, stiff competition for Amazon’s Echo and the 10th anniversary of Apple’s iPhone.
- In media: Ongoing issues with fake news and the filter bubbles that come with personalization, more media mergers and more choices for digital TV services.
And here’s some good reading from the last year:
- The Wall Street Journal’s ongoing coverage of blood-testing startup Theranos, from the inaccuracies in its equipment, to its retreat under regulatory sanctions, to the profile of the former employee who blew the whistle.
- The New York Times on Pokémon Go and augmented reality and its blow-by-blow breakdown of the Russian hack of the DNC.
- ProPublica on the bias built into an algorithm used to predict future criminal behavior, Motherboard on how to build a bot that isn’t racist and Nature on the difficulty of assessing the social impacts of artificial intelligence.
- The Financial Times’ coverage of Apple, including its secret teams working on virtual reality and cars.
- Vulture on how Peak TV is reshaping the television industry.
Also, on the latest episode of Too Embarrassed to Ask, Lauren Goode and Peter Kafka break down all the different streaming services, and why your favorite TV show isn’t on Netflix.
