Professor Brian Keegan of the University of Colorado’s Information Science department will describe several examples of outreach and research projects – present and future – that he, his faculty colleagues and their grad students are involved with, in that fascinating place where journalism meets data science. One example: How deep analysis of Wikipedia editing behavior can forecast events from box-office revenues to the spread of diseases.
