More than ever, newsrooms are leveraging the power of data, from newsgathering to creative storytelling. Data is changing journalism from how story leads are generated to how content is distributed and consumed.

A panel of experts from some of the leading online outlets will discuss the intersection of data and journalism from all angles, covering the most important tech and methodologies shaping how newsrooms clean, analyze and visualize data.

The discussion will cover not only what we’re seeing today but emerging trends that will impact the future of content and its delivery. Panelists include experts from Medium, The New Republic, Vocativ, Business Insider and NYTimes.
