– ‘a head start on the next disruption’ provides a continually updated reference for how artificial intelligence is being used in the practice of journalism. The site is produced by Cochran360 and intended to help journalists everywhere have a head start on the next disruption.

Facts are summarised so users can see the emerging ideas quickly. Items are selected from:

  • news reports from around the world
  • commentary in leading periodicals
  • industry, government, and agency reports
  • academic articles
  • findings in research that may influence events ahead
  • panels, talks, books, quotes – we track them all

The result is an annotated guide to the capabilities, limitations, and influences of AI as they apply to journalism — part what to look for, part ‘look at this.’ 

The site is international in scope, updated often, and includes a primer on AI fundamentals.
