Dan Pacheco, the Peter A. Horvitz Chair in Journalism Innovation at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications says of Journatic, the automated reporting tool and company,“But look at the ways technology, automation and robots have changed manufacturing for the better. That’s just inevitable with the pace of technology. Granted, journalism is not an assembly line task. But when it comes to assembling community information and event calendars, that’s not something we’re training journalists to do. It’s boring, menial work. So algorithms can be a really efficient way to do it that makes everyone’s life easier.”
