‘Artificial intelligence in news media is being used in new ways from speeding up research to accumulating and cross-referencing data and beyond.’

Emerj surveys how AI systems are being used in big newsrooms and finds they are supporting journalists rather than displacing jobs.

Example activities they found:

  •  Streamlining media workflows
  •  Automating mundane tasks
  •  Crunching more data
  •  Digging out media insights
  •  Eliminating fake news
  •  Generating outputs
