Der Ankündigungstext der Zurich R User Group:
«Marie-José Kolly: On weapons and dialects: The initial hypothesis and the final story
Datajournalists at the Neue Zürcher Zeitung use R (as well as Python and further tools) to process data and to test hypotheses. And, thereby, to find stories in data. We will talk about two of our recent stories and the process behind them. What they have in common: the results of our analysis surprised us. In case 1, we had no specific anticipation as to the outcome of the analysis – but the data made a very clear point. In case 2, we were expecting very specific effects but could not confirm them – and therefore created a very different article than what we had initially planned.
