Can a robot do my job? Understanding the growing trends in the world of computational journalism.
With the Associated Press, amongst others, using automated journalism techniques to publish many of their finance and sports stories, and machine learning re-writing headlines for Buzzfeed in real-time, we are living the age of computational journalism. This panel brings together a group of world-class researchers examining the key trends of algorithmic accountability, automated journalism, artificial intelligence and the possibility of designing a new programming language for journalists. Hear about their current research projects and listen to a discussion about these cutting-edge trends and what they mean for the future of journalism.
