Easy machine learning for journalists
In newsrooms, machine learning has been used to identify secret spy planes, tag unreported hate crimes, track overfishing, and more. Google’s machine learning tools make it easy to build projects like this, no data science background required. In this session, a Google engineer will give an overview and show how they can be used for compelling, data-driven reporting and a Quartz journalist will describe how machine-learning tools fit into familiar investigative-journalism processes.
