These last years, we’ve seen how machine learning is helping journalists with their day-to-day tasks such as finding stories, doing photography work or fact-checking. These are algorithms that enable computers to learn patterns from data (Diakopoulos, 2019) and speed up the process of publishing.
However, we are starting to see initiatives that aim to help journalists on the ideation and creative steps. Could a tool that uses machine learning techniques generate new angles on existing or new stories?
Inject, a collaboration tool between journalists in Europe, aims to help journalists by offering different points of view, concepts or angles on the interested topics so that it can be represented in a different way.
