Robot journalism is one of the year’s hot topics as more media brands are experimenting with the automated delivery of news on mobile. Some bots are completely automated services that mimic a normal text conversation, but most involve some human curation of the news.
In this two-hour workshop, John Keefe, Senior Editor for Data News & Journalism Technology at WNYC, will explain what bots are, how they work and what they may mean for journalism.
John has built many bots for his job and believes that journalists shouldn’t fear technology. Everyone can find his or her inner geek. John recently taught a popular class on sensor journalism.
