SXSW Interactive 2016

Innovating a Newsroom with Data

Description:

Newsrooms are full of data: Realtime data, long term data, behavioral data, data on device usage, on time spent and articles read - But what are we supposed to do with it?

How can we use newsroom analytics to create better, more impactful journalism? How might we change workflows and publishing models with the use of data? How can we develop specific products for a certain subset of users? And how do we train our reporters and editors to use data without getting caught in the clickbait-trap?

This panel will showcase strategic approaches and practical examples how user centered and data based newsrooms work.
