Extracting the Full Potential From Data Journalism

It is a decade since data journalism took off as a distinct discipline.

How has the field evolved in that time, and what are the best practices today?

This talk explores what data journalism is — and isn’t — in 2017, the vital role it can play in the news media’s quest for sustainability, key requirements for its successful implementation, and methods for evaluating its success.

Speaker:

John Burn-Murdoch is a senior data-visualization journalist at the Financial Times, where he works as part of the interactive news and graphics teams to find and develop stories using quantitative techniques, and to tell those stories using data-visualizations and animations.
