Artificial Intelligence - A Boost for Journalism?


Foundation: Knight Foundation

Paul Cheung, director for journalism at Knight Foundation, writes that when AI is harnessed properly, it can become journalism's 'superfood'.

According to Cheung, there are many examples of how AI is already empowering journalism. Some use AI to increase efficiency, while others use it to produce more robust reporting and automated content.

Cheung cites how AP, Bloomberg and the Los Angeles Times used automation to deliver thousands of stories; how Washington Post used machine learning to moderate, filter and flag comments with its Modbot; and how Quartz built a machine-learning model that aided journalists in an investigation on how multinational companies have avoided paying taxes when they do business in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Knight Foundation is a funder of Quartz's AI studio. Cheung also writes how natural language processing, machine learning and deep learning will have the most impact to how journalism is produced and consumed in the next decade. Since 2017, Knight Foundation has been exploring the intersection of AI and the news.
