“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 at newsrewired on 7 November 2018 in London, UK, and learn about the latest advancements of AI-powered technologies in the newsroom.
New speaker announcement
Benjamin Beavan, data and insights development at Getty Images, will be joining Pete Clifton, editor-in-chief at Press Association, looking at some of the most innovative ways of using AI tools in the newsroom. They will discuss how technology can help reporters process masses of data, spot patterns and gain story leads based on trends.
Other panels and talks include
Getting Generation Z engaged with the news
This panel will explore what the younger generation (13-24), who never knew life without smartphones, wants from news organisations. Getting them engaged with your brand and making them stay is key to get ahead of your competition.
Beyond the Facebook News Feed: New social media strategies for content sharing
Although Facebook demoted news in its feed, appetite for sharing news stories doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. This panel will look at how news organisations are using chat apps and social media groups to share their content.
Memberships in news organisations – lessons from the Guardian
