WashPost starts computational journalism lab

Recently, Washington Post decided to start a new very exciting venture with Associate Professor Nicholas Diakopoulos, who was the academic consultant for our Immersive Automation project. He will be involved in building a computational political journalism lab for its coverage of the 2020 presidential campaign.

Under the leadership of Jeremy Bowers, the team will collaborate with Diakopoulos, an assistant professor in communication studies and computer science at Northwestern University, to experiment with algorithmic and computational journalism tools to support The Post’s political data efforts in advance of the 2020 election.

We will follow the development with great interest.
