While the media is obsessing about ChatGPT, Reuters has been quietly innovating its Connect marketplace that provides client newsrooms with photo and video materials.
New AI-powered features allow journalists to quickly find people and moments in Reuters videos, which helps speed up editing and publishing processes. The tech also applies automated time-coded, speech-to-text transcripts, translation and identification of public figures. Metadata also makes it easier to discover and license Reuters content that can be auto-published to a chosen platform, saving journalists time.
Senior product manager Conor Molumby said that customer need was at the heart of the innovation.
