You're invited to see the latest prototypes from Northwestern's collaborative innovations class.
Each team will present their work, audience members will have the chance to ask questions, and we'll end with pizza and conversation.
Among the nine projects: a browser plug-in that surfaces the Twitter conversation about the article you are viewing; a tool allowing social-media sharing for content in print publications; an app that builds a personalized itinerary for a short visit to an unfamiliar city; and a system that finds possible interview sources for a journalist writing about a company or institution.
Each of these projects has been built by teams of journalism and computer science students over a 10-week quarter. The goal is to build a working piece of software for journalists, publishers or media consumers.
The best of these projects may move into the Knight Lab for further development and deployment.
