Robotajakirjandus: kas peaksime kartma?

Robotajakirjanike kirjutatud uudised on juba praegu paljude uudistetoimetuste reaalsus. Robotid suudavad toota sisutihedaid artikleid, mis on küll peamiselt seotud numbrite ning faktidega ja kust puudub analüüs ja ka tsitaadid, kuid annavad sellegi poolest edasi lugejatele olulise infot.

Euroopa Ajakirjanike Föderatsioon koostöös EBU projektiga MediaRoad korraldavad 5. juunil 2018 Lissabonis tasuta workshop’i 

Robot Journalism, Should we be afraid?

Robot “journalism” is already the reality in many newsrooms churning out content faster than we can consume. News organisations are increasingly experimenting with robot journalism using computer programmes to analyse data and produce news stories because robots are more productive.

But how much do we know about these robots behind the news? Are they friends or foes of journalists? Should journalists be afraid or take advantage of the technology to improve their working conditions and quality of journalism?

This  workshop will focus on these questions and explore the pros and cons of robot journalism, the existing practices and the impact on journalists, especially on working conditions, ethics and quality. Experts on robot journalism, journalists, media managers, representatives of journalists’ organisations and media will gather in this workshop for the debate.

The  workshop will be held on 5 June 2018, in Lisbon and is co-located the event with the EFJ annual meeting (6-7 June 2018).
