Crowdsourcing on the go - the Journalism++ Task Force Project
Complex investigations require tedious data-wrangling work that could be best solved by a distributed team, or even by the general public. Taskforce is a new tool designed to simplify crowdsourcing efforts, made specifically for journalistic investigations. It's aimed at involving your newsroom or your readership in this effort, with a user-friendly messaging-based interface that anyone can easily get into. In this workshop, we'll go through this tool, try it out, and find ways in which it could help your own investigations.

Finding the needle in the document pile with the new ALEPH software
ALEPH is a new open source software, developed by OCCRP data wizz Friedrich Lindenberg to do searches in unstructured data and documents. ALEPH does the indexing, searching and analysing for you. It has to be installed on a server and will be demonstrated on data.occrp.org, but others such as Süddeutsche Zeitung also use it in-house. In this presentation Friedrich will focus on the use of the tool. For interested programmers, here is the Github - https://github.com/alephdata/aleph, for further questions please contact Friedrich after the session.
