Christiaan Triebert

From bystander videos of police violence in the U.S. to satellite images revealing potential mass graves in Sudan, there is an unprecedented amount of information available to anyone with an internet connection. Online open source investigation is becoming mainstream and, combined with traditional journalistic methods, can be a powerful new form of accountability and explanatory journalism. In this lunch talk, Christiaan Triebert will delve into various case studies from the past year, which include ones where emerging technologies like A.I. have served as another valuable tool in the investigator’s toolkit.

Christiaan Triebert, is a journalist for The New York Times’ Visual Investigations team. Discussant Arvind Narayanan, Professor of Computer Science, Director, Center for Information Technology Policy.
