This idiom is new to me but I guess it makes sense these days. It's also an event ("symposium") with a live coverage here. The material in there is impressive and curious, see for yourself:
"Journalists and computer scientists increasingly are working together to develop innovative methods of reporting and telling news stories. Consider:
Journalists are mashing up drones with GPS-equipped cameras to automatically create 3D models of newsworthy structures.
Bots are programatically writing news stories that the public views as just as credible as those written by humans, according to one study.
Computer scientists are creating software programs to help journalists identify and correct false rumors spreading on Twitter.
Journalism students are using electronic sensors that monitor dust and noise to investigate construction sites.
Journo-hackers are developing tools that use artificial intelligence to pull story ideas from big, complicated data sets."
Why do I blog this? Im polishing a manuscript on algorithms and cultural production, which is strangely orthogonal to this set of examples.
