Artificial Intelligence (AI) has entered newsrooms around the globe during the last decade. The era of sophisticated algorithms, machine learning tools, and full automation from early simple solutions began. AI tools play an important role on many levels of the process of making and distributing news. AI assists journalists in their work, whether it is the fully automated production of news stories or the partial use of machine learning. The integration of AI-based tools into the journalism process also places huge demands for journalists, technical staff and lead editors. Will robotic reporters replace human journalists? What can be automated in the media? What are the implications of the ongoing trend to the automation process in the media? The conference “Transformation of Newsrooms with the Advent of Artificial Intelligence Journalism” is interested in sharing best practices, presenting case studies, good and not-so-good solutions, advantages and dangers, and risks connected with AI in everyday journalism practice. We encourage researchers and academics and media professionals, journalists, editors, IT, to share their experiences, the issues that these technologies are bringing to the media.
