@AP Reveals Challenges in "Guide To The Newsroom In Age Of AI"

@AP Reveals Challenges in "Guide To The Newsroom In Age Of AI" | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

This brings to light some glaring challenges with algorithmically driven journalism:
- Algorithms are difficult to audit and, as such, to hold accountable
- Algorithms require continuous flows of training data
- Algorithms are difficult to adjust or alter, because we don’t know how the black box reaches its customers.”
- A much deeper problem explored by the report is that algorithms struggle to infer meaning beyond what is visible in a photo or written in a story. “A computer only understands the world to the extent its programmers have allowed it to,” said Justin Myers, AP’s automation editor. “You can say the same thing about its understandings of the law, of fairness, of harm and of progress.”

Associated Press on Using Automated Content Creation Tech

Associated Press on Using Automated Content Creation Tech | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

Today, AP has projects underway in the area of natural language processing, summarization, image recognition, and tagging. They’re using machine learning based transcription tools to create transcripts of video much faster than ever. And they’re even doing some experimenting with machine learning and analysing big data sets to see if they can produce insights for journalists.

LT-Innovate's insight:

Most large new organisations are experimenting with #NLG type tools to automate various time-consuming language-based tasks. The key benefit is that these projects produce data that can then be used to teach the machines to do the same job better.

@nwzer Wants to Rebuild Journalism with AI and Citizen Reporters | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

The Dutch media company will host two parallel systems, one in Dutch and one in English. Under the nwzer model, news consumers will be the ones who write, edit, name, and add onto stories on the site. The project will then use machine learning to train nwzer to recognize various user inputs, such as text, images, and corrections. The system will allow many users to work together simultaneously to create one cohesive article. Once the system thinks the article is ready, it’s cleared for publication.

The new system is called Reuters Tracer. It uses Twitter as a kind of global sensor that records news events as they are happening. The system then uses various kinds of data mining and machine learning to pick out the most relevant events, determine their topic, rank their priority, and write a headline and a summary. The news is then distributed around the company’s global news wire.

Jarno M. Koponen: Reinventing News Media with AI-driven Assistants

The news assistant also could recommend which article should be published next using an editorial push notification, simultaneously suggesting the best time for sending the push notification to the end users. And as a reminder, even though Google’s Duplex is quite a feat, natural language processing (NLP) is far from solved. Human and machine intelligence can be brought together in the very core of the content production and language understanding process. Augmenting the linguistic superpowers of journalists with AI solutions would empower NLP research and development in new ways.
