Narrate at the UN Data Literacy workshop, November 2018

Our Chief Storyteller, Tony Quinlan, spoke on Thursday 15th November 2018 at the Bangkok workshop on UN Data Literacy. Talking about using ethnography in-field, he discussed projects we’ve undertaken with Cognitive Edge’s SenseMaker tools.

His slides from the conference are downloadable here (with a couple of text-heavy slides that were removed for timing):

For details of why stories and micro-narratives from the field are better self-interpreted rather than either expert-interpreted or algorithm-analysed, there are two more detailed posts here and here.
