ONADC: Algorithms and Machine Learning

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA DC

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 Chase Davis 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
