Data and analytics is revolutionizing our world. Thanks to advances in big data algorithms and analytics tools, we’re able to glean more useful insights from the intense amount of data flowing in. Like in other fields, data and its timely analytics is one of key tools that can help to inform better health practices and subsequently save lives.
It is in this background that we’ve been engaged in a unique collaboration with medical doctors, journalists, data scientists and policy makers using data-mining and watchdog reporting skills to promote and strengthen data-research and data-driven reporting across Asia. We’ve conducted data boot camps across Asia in collaboration with global organisations such as KAS (Germany) and GIJN (Washington).
The boot camp will be a mixture of data exercises, briefing and sessions including one by BBC’s Internet Research Specialist, Paul Myers who will conduct a special workshop on how to spot fake news. He will also share his groundbreaking techniques and strategies that continue to shape the way journalists conduct online research and investigation.
Journalists, data researchers, healthcare professionals, cyber security professionals, policy makers among others.
