2020 Brown Institute Showcase
October 15, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
The event features a unique mix of journalists and technologists, all funded through the 2019-20 Magic Grant program — this is their moment to show off a year’s worth of work. The event will take place on a unique virtual platform allowing visitors to mingle with directors and staff, and meet individually with grantees while they demo their projects.
The projects this year are incredibly strong. Each one addresses an important contemporary question, be it political, cultural or technical — from a tool that can assist in analyzing the last ten years of 24/7 TV news coverage; to a solutions journalism approach to tracking and reporting on maternal mortality in Nigeria; to a new tool that securely transforms a smartphone into a socially-minded diagnostic device offering insights into digital behavior; to the first comprehensive database of human rights violations in Pakistan.
