About This Webinar

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 intervention.

In this online training, John Keefe, Senior Editor for Data News & Journalism Technology at WNYC, will explain how bots work and how journalists can use them to enhance their reporting and improve efficiency.

John has built many bots for his job and recently taught popular sessions on bots at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and ONA 2016. John believes that journalists shouldn’t fear technology. Everyone can find his or her inner geek! No prior bot experience needed!

Who should take this training:
Journalists
