InkHouse is thrilled to partner with HUBweek this year - which kicks off on September 25th.
HUBweek is that creative festival you've been hearing so much about, that celebrates innovation at the intersection of art, science, and technology. Founded by The Boston Globe, Harvard University, MIT and Mass General Hospital, it’s a first-of-its-kind civic collaboration that brings together the most creative and inventive minds making an impact in Boston and around the world.
InkHouse will also co-host HUBweek's first-ever journalism hackathon along with Northeastern's Journalism School, “Data Science, Journalism and the Future of Justice,” the evening of Wednesday, September 28th.
The hackathon will be centered around an exciting exploration of several large datasets that relate to criminal justice issues. The hosts will be Todd Wallack, an award-winning investigative reporter for The Boston Globe’s Spotlight team, specializing in data journalism, public records and financial reporting; Prof. Dan O’Brien, an urban data scientist at Northeastern and research director of the Boston Area Research Initiative; Prof. Michelle Borkin, a computer scientist and data visualization expert at Northeastern’s College of Computer and Information Science; and Prof. John Wihbey of Northeastern’s School of Journalism.
