Google Will Unveil News Projects

This looks interesting (via Peter Mullen):

August 7 at Google HQ, the Center for Investigative Reporting: Techraking III conference. There will be presentations by eight Google Fellows who will announce projects they have been working on, related to news.


“Mining the News,” a free event co-hosted with Google. Designed for data professionals and journalists, TechRaking Three will connect innovative data models and practices with high-quality investigative journalism.

During the first half of the day, media and data experts will explore the benefits of open data and how to equip the next generation of journalists with 21st-century research skills. We also will dive into specific best practices that are helping journalists produce groundbreaking investigations. In the afternoon, data journalism design sprints will result in a winning project at the end of the day.

Here is the schedule and the speakers: Techraking
