The New York Times*

Session Title: A Tour of New York Times' R&D Lab

The R&D Lab is investigating how meaning can be gathered by moving from today's frame of ʺrecordingʺ – that is, counting what is easily counted, and using opaque machine learning algorithms to hopefully find knowledge embedded in the data – to one of ʺlistening,ʺ where machines and people collaborate to discover knowledge in data sources that are harder to quantify. Among our many exhibits is a Listening Table, which keeps track of the topics discussed around it and allows participants to mark key moments as important, augmenting our conversations with structured information. This session is officially "off the record". Tweeting or photos of the R&D Lab demos are not allowed during the tour as they contain innovations with pending patents.
