Computation + Journalism 2019 will be held at the University of Miami, FL on Feb 1-2

The Computation+Journalism Symposium is a celebration and synthesis of new ways to find and tell news stories with, by, and about data and algorithms. It is a venue to seed new collaborations between journalists and computer and data scientists: a bazaar for the exchange of ideas between industry/practice and academia/research.

We’re excited to announce our keynote speakers:

  • Lisa Gibbs, Associated Press, “The Augmented and Automated Newsroom”
  • Brian Hamman, New York Times, “From Designing Boxes to Designing Algorithms: How Programming the News Has Evolved at the New York Times”
  • Yphtach Lelkes, University of Pennsylvania, “Projecting Confidence: How the Probabilistic Horse Race Confuses and Demobilizes the Public”

Additional speakers will be announced soon!

Registration is now open! Learn more about attending here.
