Newest technologies vs. traditional journalism. Is artificial intelligence a threat to the journalistic profession?
17 June 2016

The new era of technical innovation is resulting in fundamental changes to many traditional business procedures, jobs and professions — and journalism is no exception. Computer software is offering cutting-edge online solutions that increasingly surpass humans in terms of speed and quality of produced content. Automatic scripts for writing news products based on processing raw data are being widely used by dozens of news organizations around the world and these news writing robots do not need holidays or weekends, never miss deadlines and generate content ready at a fraction of the cost. How far away are we from the day when machines acquire the ability to perform journalistic investigations and write analytical memos? Are we on the doorstep of a new era when human beings will no longer be necessary to do a journalist’s job?
