The Computation + Journalism Symposium 2013, held Jan 31 – Feb 1, 2013, at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA was a huge success. Please see the videos here of all the sessions. See me discuss computational journalism with Phil Meyer, and my slides and take-away points from the closing session.
Join us for the 2nd Computation + Journalism Symposium 2013 in Atlanta, GA on Jan 31 – Feb 1, 2013 What role does computation have in the practice of journalism today and in the near future? As computer-driven forces like automation and aggregation increasingly alter the role of journalists and journalism in society, how can computation become a […]
Here is an excerpt from a Google Research Blog on our Video Stabilization on YouTube. Now even more improved. One thing we have been working on within Research at Google is developing methods for making casual videos look more professional, thereby providing users with a better viewing experience. Professional videos have several characteristics that differentiate […]
In Spring 2012, I am teaching 2 classes. Advanced Computational Photography (CS 8803 PHO) [with Grant Schindler] This is an advanced topics class in Computational Photography, building on my intro class and explores technical aspects of pictures, and more precisely the capture and depiction of reality on a 2D medium. The scientific, perceptual, and artistic […]
Computational Journalism is defined as the application of computation to the activities of journalism such as information gathering, organization, communication, and dissemination of information, while upholding values of journalism such as accuracy and verifiability. Journalists are increasingly adopting and using the proliferation of open-source tools and embracing different styles of journalism. Explore how newsrooms are […]
Just did a session at the Future Media Fest at GA Tech on Computational Journalism. Journalism and related aspects information gathering, verification and distribution have significantly changed in recent times with the growth and pervasiveness of Computation, Information, and Networking Technologies. In this session, we will discuss how computation is now completely embedded into each […]
Happy 2010! In Spring Term 2010, I am teaching the following two classes. Computation + Journalism (CS 4464 / CS 6465) This class is aimed at understanding the computational and technological advancements in the area of journalism. Primary focus is on the study of technologies for developing new tools for (a) sense-making from diverse news information […]
Augmenting Aerial Earth Maps with Dynamic Information Abstract We introduce methods for augmenting aerial visualizations of Earth (from tools such as Google Earth or Microsoft Virtual Earth) with dynamic information obtained from videos. Our goal is to make Augmented Earth Maps that visualize the live broadcast of dynamic sceneries within a city. We propose different […]
N. Diakopoulos PhD Thesis (2009): Collaborative annotation, analysis, and presentation interfaces for digital video"
Title: Collaborative annotation, analysis, and presentation interfaces for digital video Author: Diakopoulos, Nicholas A. Abstract Information quality corresponds to the degree of excellence in communicating knowledge or intelligence and encompasses aspects of validity, accuracy, reliability, bias, transparency, and comprehensiveness among others. Professional news, public relations, and user generated content alike all have their own subtly different information […]
