Brainstorming Session: Managing Knowledge Systems and Databases

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Having big data is not enough anymore. It's how you use it. It's about how do your databases work together and what you can do with them. Investigative organizations are doing interesting new things and working together to find ways to get their databases to talk to each other; to model patterns of crime or corruption and match those patterns to your data; to design machine learning platforms that identify individuals and assign records to them; and to build out global topographies of money and power that can instantly map complex networks by different variables. Join this discussion and figure out how to get involved.  

Note: Data Labs have 38 seats with computers. These workshops may reach capacity quickly, so we recommend you arrive early.
