Big Data – Friend or Foe…?

Get the Real Story at Digital Journalism World 2013 this 7-8 October at M Hotel Singapore.

Data is big, and everywhere. Continuous technology advancements have seen the rise of data and with that, provides both opportunities and pose challenges to the journalism industry. While more data brings the ease to access data anytime anywhere, it also means that journalists have to sieve through the large net of data to derive value.  The question is: how can journalists do that? How can they build an effective data operation to capture value? Ultimately, is Big Data a friend or foe? Learn how you can befriend Big Data and make it work for you. Listen to these presenters and get the real story:

  • John Burn-Murdoch, Data Journalist, The Guardian UK
  • Nicholas Kayser-Bril, CEO & Co-Founder, Journalism++
  • Paul Cheung, Global Interactive Editor, Associated Press & President and Advisory Board Member, Asian American Journalists Association

Conference will also cover these sessions – Visual Storytelling | Working with Social Media & Citizen Journalism | Understanding Digital Ethics | Integrative Models of Mainstream and Online News | Rise of Mobile Journalism and New Tools of Change | New Newsroom Workflows | Increasing and Measuring and Social Engagements and more…
