The Future of Journalism:
Artificial Intelligence
And Digital Identities


Interaction between journalism, the Internet and social communities is
familiar and intensely discussed, helping us understand how journalism can
raise our collective intelligence. We discuss how artificial intelligence (AI)
will add to that picture and thus influence the future of journalism. We
describe 'Digital Identities' and their future interaction with journalism. We
summarize state-of-the-art AI methods usable to establish the 'DNA' of
journalistic content, how matching that content with digital identities enables
behavioral targeting for consumer engagement. We review the driving forces
such procedures may introduce to journalism and show an example of a
journalistic behavioral-targeting engine. We highlight some concerns and
discuss how using digital identities and AI can be complex versus current
journalistic principles. We stress the need for ethical principles in using
digital identities in journalism, and suggest examples of such principles. We
issue a call for stakeholders to jointly explore the potential effects of AI
algorithms on the journalism profession and journalism's role in a
democratic society and suggest questions to be explored.

1. Introduction
Computer-assisted intelligence is part of life: ‘augmented intelligence’
i
 of individuals using personal computers and ‘collective intelligence’ of groups when networking. Finally, there is Artificial Intelligence (AI), when computers act intelligently without human interaction, mimicking human intelligence (Turing, 1950)
 
These intelligences are blending and converging. Augmented individual intelligence, Collective intelligence and AI are co-evolving. The Internet is  becoming part of our minds and our minds are becoming part of the Internet. Journalism is part of IT-assisted intelligence. Personal computing entered  journalism in the 80s, the Internet in the 90s, and we are now seeing the explosion of social interaction enter journalism, ranging from reader comments to crowdsourcing.
