London Freelance Branch will discuss Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how its tools can help journalists, rather than putting us all out of  a job.

He has published more than 220 peer-reviewed papers in academic journals, conferences and workshops proceedings. He was program chair for the 12th IEEE International Conference on Requirements Engineering in Kyoto in 2004, and Editor of the IEEE Software’s Requirements column from 2005-2013.

Toby Abel is technical director at which does training and consultancy. He will discuss which parts of journalism AI is going to replace and what this will mean for journalism in the next five years. He knows a fair amount about the subject.  Over the past 10 years he has built the products, development teams and strategies for AI-focused companies in events, technology, education, recruitment, fashion and now news, with Krzana. Toby will be giving a hands-on demonstration of Krzana, and explaining how it's being used for local news and political reporting.  Follow Toby on Twitter @tabeldammit.
