Artificial intelligence (AI) in the newsroom is no longer a distant future dream. Robots are already collecting and verifying data, writing articles and adapting them to different target groups. But innovation in the newsroom is about so much more than technology. How do we ensure that we don't get lost in the bits and the bytes and keep our laser focus on the most crucial part – the readers, listeners and viewers? In this session, you will meet some of the most successful newsrooms in the industry. They will tell us more about how they are working hard to stay on top of this game.

Bergens Tidende: From fragmented news stories to curated news feeds with extra value

BBC: Creating and serving personalised content at BBC News
