AI and the Future of Journalism

Artificial intelligence is already revolutionizing the news industry, as organizations use machine learning to automate thousands of stories, sift through massive data sets to find trends and outliers, and build bots that scale individual conversations with their audiences. That's just the beginning. But as the potential for artificial intelligence grows, so do the ethical implications. This session will explore the pitfalls and possibilities of how AI will transform the way we report — and consume — the news.
