(801) A Little AI Goes a Long Way: Building Smart, Dynamic, and Scalable Journalism and Media Systems

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Sunday 11th November, 2012

2:30pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

From Watson, to driverless cars, to Siri, artificial intelligence is beginning to show what it can do. Now it’s journalism’s turn: The emergence of text processing and machine learning toolkits and services means that it’s easier than ever to build some editorial intelligence into online journalism and media applications – producing systems that are smart, dynamic, and scalable.

In this fireside, the Knight Lab will discuss some of the tools that are out there, what they can do, and how they can be used. We'll jumpstart the discussion by describing and showing some applications using this approach as well as hearing from other people in the community.

Discussion leaders:

  • Larry Birnbaum
  • Scott Bradley
  • Shawn O’Banion
