Computational Journalism

Course Description

Computational Journalism is a course given at JMSC during the Spring 2013 semester. It covers, in great detail, some of the most advanced techniques used by journalists to understand digital information, and communicate it to users. We will focus on unstructured text information in large quantities, and also cover related topics such as how to draw conclusions from data without fooling yourself, social network analysis, and online security for journalists. These are the algorithms used by search engines and intelligence agencies and everyone in between.
