Quantifying Journalism: Metrics, Data and Computation
Friday, May 30, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
The first Tow Research conference, Quantifying Journalism: Metrics, Data and Computation, on May 30, 2014 will reflect on a big year in data journalism. Quantifying Journalism: Data, Metrics, and Computation will bring together academics, practitioners and technologists to explore three critical questions at the heart of the data journalism conversation:
Beyond Clickbait: How are news organizations actually using analytics, and what does It mean for content?
Data: What is (and isn’t) it good for?
Robot Reporters: What new journalistic data gathering tools, such as drones and sensors are on the horizon?
