Knight Center: Join the revolution in conversational journalism: Register now for ‘Building Bots for Journalism,’ a free online course. “Bots have been a buzzword for journalists in recent years because of their abilities to reach readers on platforms consumers are already using on a daily basis: SMS text, Amazon Alexa, Google Home or Facebook Messenger. In the next MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) from the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas, John Keefe from news site Quartz — a pioneer and promoter of conversational journalism — will teach you the basics of writing a bot that will respond to readers like a human through text or speech.”
