Best of Data-Skup

In-person events are finally back! Martin Olsson of J++ / Newsworthy went to Norwegian datajournalism conference Data-SKUP. These are his take-aways.

Some 200 journalists attended Data-Skup in Oslo with presententations, talks and workshops in Excel, R, Python and AI.

Statistician and science communicator Jo Røislien talked about communicating statistics, with emphasis on the pandemic. One takeaway is that it’s not just the numbers that matter, the format does too. A risk of 5 in 100 for dying in covid-19 was perceived higher by the audience than a risk of 5 percent. And a risk of 1 in 20 was perceived as even higher, according to research from Winton Center for Public Understanding of Risk.

Danish journalist Anne Skjerning showed how she by scraping sex advertising sites could map networks of brothels and connect them to Polish recruitments sites. The story eventually became a podcast series.

Edward Boyda of Earthrise media talked about how he used satellite images to chart Chinese internment camps in Xinjiang and sand mining in the Poyang Lake.
