Sensors, Uncensored: Using Sensors to Enrich Storytelling

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

As the digital landscape evolves, sensors are bridging the virtual world with the physical world and opening the door to a whole new kind of storytelling. While still nascent in practice, a trend called “sensor journalism” is growing as journalists experiment with new technology and tools to gather information and expand on knowledge about environmental factors like air quality, water quality, and even urban sound design.

Questions this session will explore:
1. What is sensor journalism, and who is doing/has done it?
2. How is sensor journalism related to and different from data journalism?
3. How could open networked sensors potentially enrich storytelling?
4. What are some ways that journalists approach the issue of data quality?

Talk to me about remote + networked sensor technology, journalism, citizen science, or burritos. In no particular order.
