Statistics Breakfast with Mark Hansen (Thursdays in February and March 2021)

February 18 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am EST
Virtual

On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we reassessed the pace of climate change. And after the 2020 Election, the country debated whether any of the then-President’s claims about voter fraud could be true, attempting to estimate the true number of missing or incorrectly counted ballots. In each story, an increase in observation and measurement, in data, helped us understand little…

Applying Emerging Technologies In Service of Journalism- with members of the New York Times R&D team

March 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Emerging technologies, particularly within computer vision, photogrammetry and spatial computing, are unlocking new forms of storytelling for journalists to help people understand the world around them. In this talk, members of the R&D team at The New York Times talk about their process for researching and developing new capabilities built atop emerging research. In particular, hear how they are embracing photogrammetry and spatial computing to create new storytelling techniques that allow a reader to experience an event as close to reality as possible. Learn about the process of collecting photos, generating 3D models, editing, and technologies used to scale up to millions of readers. The team will also share their vision for these technologies and journalism, their ethical considerations along the way, and a research wishlist that would accelerate their work.
