About us

journalismAI.com is an independent database of developments in artificial intelligence and journalism. The site launched in 2018, and entries date from 2014. All content is human-curated and summarized for a quick read.

Items are searchable, link to the original source, and include:

  • news reports from around the world
  • analysis and op-eds in leading periodicals
  • industry, government, and agency reports
  • academic articles
  • findings in research that may influence events ahead
  • panels, talks, books, and quotes

journalismAI.com was founded in 2017 by Andrew Cochran, ex-head of news strategy for CBC, Canada’s public broadcaster. Short bio.

All items are critically assessed. If it is a video, we screen it from start to finish. If it is text, we read it in its entirety. This includes pieces listed as ‘briefs.’ The selection criteria are:

  • it presents new information
  • it is from an authoritative source
  • it is expressed clearly

Sourced items are summarized/annotated, dated by when they were first published, and link to the full story. Original items are dated by when they were first posted and link to supporting and complementary items.

All selection and writing is by humans. That’s not a value judgment, just how we work. Translation is available with an algorithm provided by a third party.


We are the leading independent resource about the capabilities, limitations, and prospects for artificial intelligence as they apply to the practice of journalism. We want journalists everywhere to be prepared for the next disruption.
