Journalism by #s: Data Will Change Nature of News

The advent of the Web marked the best and worst of times for journalism: Hyper-local and citizen news, the decline of print and rise of pay walls, reporters learning new skills as well as learning how to be "brands." The transformation has been unprecedented and the industry's future has never been more promising, if not uncharted. One thing, however, is clear: Content may be journalism's king, but there's no kingdom without data. We've gone from data supporting journalism to data driving and, in some cases, writing the actual stories themselves. Our panel will explore how data may alter the very definition of news, and whether a smart algorithm can ever replace smart, personal, emotional reporting.
Panel will be moderated by Emily Ramshaw, editor of The Texas Tribune. (www.texastribune.org), an Austin-based non-profit news organization that promotes civic engagement and discourse on public policy, politics and government.
