The Future: Establishing grand challenges for journalism and computation
We are working on identifying a set of “grand challenges” in journalism and computation.
Public affairs reporting can change lives and laws. But the journalism that holds institutions accountable is costly and increasingly difficult to fund. At Stanford, we’re working to define a set of grand challenges in journalism and computation. We hope these questions will generate novel ideals about how data and algorithms can combine to support public affairs reporting.
