"Analytics" is a dirty word and these start-up founders will be the first to say so. Come for group therapy and bleeding-edge brainstorming from the frontiers of the industry. This session includes small group discussions that will allow you to go “beyond analytics” and explore how and why artificial intelligence and machine learning can be the keys to unlocking the understanding that you are actually searching for.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists using traditional analytics but wanting something more
  • Editors and anyone seeking new ideas to bring back to their newsrooms
  • Newsrooms wanting a better understanding of how AI and machine learning can benefit their end goals
