Earlier this month, we received 608 projects, from 62 areas/countries, as part of the Data Journalism Awards 2019 competition. They offer invaluable insights on new actors and trends in the field. So we decided to sit down and crunch some numbers for you. But best of all, we wanted to show you some of the incredible data projects we got this year, from countries you don’t hear about that often.

The Data Journalism Awards 2019 records the largest number of areas/countries ever represented in the competition (and we’ve been running it since 2012!).

Do we have to fear Artificial Intelligence? No, says Luc Julia, father of Siri

Luc Julia, one of Samsung’s strong personalities, co-creator of Siri, puts this revolution in perspective. AI is a powerful tool in all fields, including media — it can assist or augment one’s intelligence; it can bring overall progress. But it can also be harmful in many ways if one doesn’t grow aware of its potential power. Awareness and responsibility are some of the challenges we have to face.
