June Meetup — Algorithms and Machine Learning

How can algorithms and machine learning help you in the newsroom?

Two editorial developers will discuss how they are using algorithms in the newsroom. Justin Myers of The Chronicle of Higher Education will talk about how he uses institutional characteristics to generate lists of "similar colleges," while Derek Willis of the New York Times will explain his work on machine learning and political coverage.

Join us June 10 from 7-9 at the George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs. The event will be held in the Art Gallery Lobby on the second floor. Light refreshments will be served. RSVPs are required and there is a $5 admission fee.

This event is sponsored by The Chronicle of Higher Education and George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs.

Hope to see you there!

— Matt and Tiffany


Volunteer to work the door, photograph or blog the event by emailing Matt ([masked]). Volunteers receive complimentary entry even if the event sells out.

    A comprehensive news app for gathering breaking news and real time news updates.
    This is a great new app that lets you stay informed on the latest news from all over the world.
    A fantastic tool for following all kind of category news - I love the design, the simplicity, the sharing capability, and I use it all the time in between job breaks to check in on what Max Foster or Charles Hodson have to say. Really great tool!

    I got stuck in Asheville, NC. Someone can use my spot if they want to.
