Data J Lab is nested in the Tilburg Center of Communication and Cognition (TiCC) at Tilburg University. TiCC explores the interactions between creative and intelligent systems and human intelligence, under the slogan “Make the computer adapt to us, not the other way round”.

TiCC hosts a variety of research projects, some of which of direct relevance to data journalism as a field of research. Here we illustrate some of them.
