The Humanoid Future of Journalism

Recording: The Humanoid Future of Journalism, Mar 13, 2018


We will show how modern newsrooms in Sweden and Finland use automated content as an editorial platform, with algorithms analysing the facts, writing the news and pointing the journalists to the most interesting stories. We will also present academic research on automation in the newsroom, and practical experiences from Sweden and Finland, where robots now write more news articles than humans. And we will talk about how all this will affect the news industry in the future.
