Key moments

Those who want to stay in journalism in the years to come need to look for areas where it will take quite some time for artificial intelligence to be introduced and where human beings will still call the shots.
Sergey Mikhaylov
I am sure that artificial intelligence is going to determine our development, change traditional journalism and change the economic model of journalism.
Siyang Liu
