Curious Saturday: Alison Killing: a beacon of truth through data-driven journalism

Data-driven journalism is a powerful tool that uncovers human rights abuses by merging online investigations with traditional journalistic techniques. By analyzing social media data, satellite imagery, and other sources, a comprehensive picture of injustice emerges.

This approach not only validates eyewitness accounts but also provides concrete evidence to hold perpetrators accountable. Through the utilization of reliable open source data, such as satellite and social media imagery, journalists can expose the darkest corners of our world.

Alison Killing, an esteemed journalist and TED Fellow, advocates for the increased use of trustworthy open-source data, like satellite and social media imagery, to illuminate the patterns of injustice that plague our #society. Her groundbreaking work sheds light on the truth and inspires action for a more just world.
