Panel: Data Journalism in the Connected Age — H. Bengtsson, L. Haddou, M. Broussard, F. Lindenberg



Every day, data journalists have to deal with the growing volume and complexity of modern data leaks. In addition, uncovering (the often hidden) connections at both global and local scales is increasingly important. Graph databases help data journalists make sense of their data and connect it to many other sources, making it easier to calculate the meaning and impact of the dataset. In this high-profile panel, five data journalists from renowned publishers and organizations will discuss changes in the journalistic landscape, the relevance of data connections, and how modern tools such as Neo4j can support journalists in their daily challenges and work.
