The Journalist, the Artist and the Engineer: The Ethics of Data Visualization

  • Friday - 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Chicago Ballrooms VI + VII
  • #datavizethics

This session is sponsored by Robert R. McCormick Foundation

Engineers approach problems by not only looking for practical, elegant solutions, but also by considering the ethical implications of their outcomes. Journalists can take the same approach in creating data visualizations, applying an artistic, ethical and practical lens to the designs they create.
