AI and software in newsrooms

I have a problem with the term "robot", but this article provides a great overview of automation and artificial intelligen (-like) applications in the journalistic value chain. AP for example increased output about earnings reportings from 300 per quarter to 3700 by using automated text generation (maybe with AI elements). There are more examples in this article, like image recognition helping to  tag digital photo archives or software to identify deep fakes.
