Hossein Derakhshan: AI can’t conjure up an Errol Morris | NEIMAN LABS

‘Emotions and affect are outside of the domain of reason, and predictive analytics and machine learning operate based on the logic of mathematics — even if they’re asked to generate emotions, they need rational methods to do so.’

The future of journalism is long-form storytelling, says Hossein Derakhshan in a prediction column for Neilman Labs, and that’s beyond the reach of AI. He argues that while AI systems advance in capabilities to gather, write, and present news, long-form will remain a distinctly human form.

Hossein Derakhshan is a London-based media researcher and former Shorenstein Fellow.
