Demystifying AI
To attend, RSVP on Eventbrite: Everybody is talking about artificial intelligence, but not many people really know what it means. On Sept. 27, we’ll demystify AI and answer some pressing questions about the field by talking to people who use it in their daily work. Our event will feature Solon Barocas, Cornell University; Madeline Elish, Data & Society; and Luis Daniel, Bloomberg in a panel discussion moderated by Meredith Broussard, author of the new book “Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World,” which explores the inner workings and outer limits of technology from a data journalist’s perspective. To attend: RSVP on Eventbrite ($10 + $1.94 processing fee, payable in advance) to Hacks/Hackers NYC.

    What we're about

    The worlds of hackers and journalists are coming together as reporting goes digital and Internet companies become media empires.

    Journalists call themselves "hacks," someone who can churn out words in any situation. Hackers use the digital equivalent of duct tape to whip out code. Hacker-journalists try and bridge the two worlds.

    This group is to bring all these people together — those who are working to help people make sense of their world. It's for hackers exploring technologies to filter and visualize information, and for journalists who use technology to find and tell stories. In the age of information overload, all their work has become even more crucial.

    This group aims to help members find inspiration and think in new directions, bringing together potential collaborators for projects and new ventures.
