Recording: Did a Robot Write Your News?, Mar 12, 2019

Using technology to create automated news content presents unique challenges and questions. How do you make sure the data are timely? How do you ensure the information is correct and not misleading? What impact does automation have on journalists and how they do their jobs? This panel will discuss the benefits and issues that arise as automated journalism becomes integrated into newsrooms. Chris Collins, Bloomberg Senior Executive Editor for Breaking News & Markets; Lisa Gibbs, AP Director of News Partnerships; and Adela Quinones, Bloomberg Product Manager & Team Lead for News and Social Media Technology will participate in a conversation led by Nicholas Diakopoulos, Assistant Professor and Director of the Computational Journalism Lab in the School of Communication at Northwestern.
