The use of artificial intelligence in the news industry is growing at an increasing pace. To better understand the implications of “robots reporting the news,” Business Wire convened an incredible panel of media experts at our New York newsroom to discuss how to responsibly and effectively apply this advanced technology to news reporting.  Moderated by Kelly Wallace, Managing Director at TrailRunner International, the panel session on machine-assisted journalism featured Francesco Marconi, R&D Chief at The Wall Street Journal; Sergey Fogelson, Vice President Data Science & Modeling at Viacom; John Keefe, Technical Architect for Bots & Machine Learning at Quartz; and Lisa Gibbs, Director of News Partnerships at The Associated Press.

For a first-hand account of the session, we invite you to read this excellent recap by The Pollack PR Marketing Group’s Hayley Jones: The Impact of Artificial Intelligence In The Newsroom And What It Means For Public Relations Professionals
