  • How The New York Times' AI-driven data insight tool is informing ad campaigns

For example, Reuters uses an AI-based tool called NewsTracer to sift through millions of tweets in real time, to flag potential news stories, for its journalists.

Publishers have also leveraged artificial intelligence to power content recommendations, to edit homepages, and for translation.
