Meet us @ Google News Lab Summit 2015

Google NewsLab SummitWhen: 01-02 December 2015

Where: Google Headquarters, Mountain View, CA, USA

What is it?
Google created the News Lab in 2015 “to support the creation and distribution of the information that keeps us all informed about what’s happening in our world today—quality journalism.” In short: Google wants to help media people to better do their job by offering its tools specifically for journalistic work.

The Google News Lab Summit is a Google initiative to make this strategy better known. It opens up the News Lab to the outside world, giving people an impression of how Google aims to get this done.
