Data-Based News - The Role of Data And Metadata In News Gathering and Management

Sep 30, 2010 · New York, United States of America

Since time immemorial, two major knowledge management questions have bedeviled news organizations. First, when faced with a giant pile of primary source material, how does a reporter intelligently and efficiently discover the newsworthy bits? Second, how should the organization index and expose the latest news and archival material to both consumers and reporters?

Stuart Myles, Deputy Director of Schema Standards at Associated Press , will tell us all about the AP's approach metadata management. Ken Ellis from Thomson Reuters will represent the technology side of the business. Veteran reporters from The New York Times (Tom Torok) and The Wall Street Journal (Maurice Tamman) will present on their work in Computer Assisted Reporting. And Justin Cleary, a Senior Product manager with AOL News, will tell provide us insight into AOL’s approach to news curation.
