It is no surprise to anyone that technological advances, especially the Internet, have changed the way many professions and trades are practiced, forcing people to update the way they perform in their work.
This maxim also applies to national and international journalism. In the last time, the concept of "data journalism", that uses the data installed in the web to construct histories, has been installed in the newsrooms of the main newspapers and fears of communication.
In order to join this trend, the CIWS Millennium Nucleus made an alliance with the prestigious CIPER CHILE Research and Information Center within the framework of the Outreach Program of the Millennium Scientific Initiative to carry out the first "Data Workshop And Public Transparency for Journalists "dedicated to professionals who work in the media.
The activity brought together researchers from the Semantic Web Research Center, who taught students concepts about data. Also, CIPER CHILE through Francisca Skoknic made an introduction to data journalism through international examples and examples of research carried out by Ciper Chile.
It should be noted that the "Workshop on Data and Public Transparency for Journalists" combined theoretical and practical classes.
