Transparency Series Discussion – Networks

February 23, 2018 @ 5:00 pm EST

Join us for an evening discussion between Kevin Connor, LittleSis and Frederik Obermaier, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist from Suddeutsche Zeitung. They will discuss networks and the role they can play in journalistic reporting and communication.

Data journalists often find that the complexity or the relationships between the various entities they are investigating force them out of simple data analysis techniques. Stories often reduce to figuring out “Who is connected to whom?”. While standard data tools (like relational databases) can be a good choice for some datasets, connected data (such as company registries, investor information, and communication networks) can be difficult and cumbersome to work with. Data journalists today turn to new tools to gain deeper insight. Have you ever struggled with trying to make sense of a spreadsheet with a dozen tabs? If so, then a graph database might be the tool you need to keep track of connections in your data.
