Can AI replace editors in the newsrooms?
“When you think about a creative process of selecting an image to match a story, it’s a much harder problem to try to solve with computers,” said Getty Images senior vice president of data and insights Andrew Hamilton in an interview with journalism.co.uk
But having developed an artificial intelligence-powered picture editor that chooses the right imagery for your story after “reading” your article — just as a human picture editor would — is it time to give robots a place in your newsroom?
Join us on 7 November 2018 in London, UK, and learn about the latest advancements of AI-powered technologies in the newsroom.
