One algorithm to rule them all?


14. June.

Time: 08:00 - 10:00


Artificial Intelligence technology has made its entry into the media industry. Content producers and publishers, faced with demanding customers and challenged budgets, see great potential from the use of machine learning, personalization, automation and even autonomous generation of content. BT will soon allow algorithms to control the front page, and other publishers are planning to do the same. What content will the readers be served? And is the editor giving up control?

Derek Bjølgerud, Manager at at TV 2 and heads the digital platform and the news room in Oslo.
