What is the potential impact of algorithms in journalism? What is the power of algorithms and why should it be at the top of a journalist’s to-do-list? Our second keynote speaker, Nicholas Diakopoulos, is a computational journalist with a background in computer science and human-computer interaction. He will give his keynote address at our annual European Investigave Journalism and Dataharvest Conference this May. The conference will take place from 18th until 21st May in Mechelen, Belgium.
Dataharvest is excited to welcome acclaimed French investigative journalist Edouard Perrin as our keynote speaker this year. Perrin came under fire after being the first reporter to reveal the secret tax deals between Luxemburg and multinationals, a tax evasion scandal dubbed LuxLeaks when Perrin collaborated with the global ICIJ network.
Lightning talks are five-minute talks about any subject. Anyone who is attending Dataharvest can pitch their idea for a talk. Journalismfund.eu will then decide on the seven or eight talks that will eventually be presented. Pitch your proposal on the google form below. Check out the programme here.
