Journalist workshop: What happens when the numbers lie?

If you as a journalist can detect how information is manipulated by algorithms, many news stories are waiting for you.

On September 6, associate professor Nicholas Diakopoulos from University of Maryland holds a groundbreaking workshop for journalists in Bergen Journalistlag. The venue is Logen Teater from 7-9 pm.

In the workshop, journalists will learn methods and techniques to test what Diakopoulos calls algorithmic accountability. Diakopoulos has previously held similar workshops in Finland and in the United States.
