The Future of AI in News: Friend or foe?

Artificial intelligence is growing up. The fear of job replacement due to automation is here. But, machines are still pretty dumb. Especially when it comes to mimicking the skills of a journalist. Hear from publishers who are developing AI-powered products to assist today's journalists and provide business insights in an ever-changing industry. The discussion will explore the ethics of AI, what advances in data science we're applying now and who, or what, future journalists will look like.
