A Japanese startup called JX Press Corp runs its newsroom using robots. Founded by Katsuhiro Yoneshige, JX Press became more widely known last year for its coverage on Kim Jong-Nam’s death. The assasination of Kim Jong-Nam, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un’s half-brother, took place in February 2017 in a Malaysian airport. Reporting the news of his death more than half an hour before any larger media companies, JX Press caught peoples attention. This small startup with no reporters has created a tool that allows them to report breaking news before other newsrooms. The tool enabling JX Press’ fast coverage uses artificial intelligence to scan social media for breaking news. This includes machine learning, deep learning and natural language processing technology. As well as discovering breaking news, the tool also writes reports.
