Nowadays, both the usage rate of information technologies and the equipments and communication systems within the scope of information technologies have taken development levels. In the last case reached in the process of the Third Industrial Revolution (Industry 3.0), 4th generation information technology tools and systems are widely used in all basic sectors. Within a short time, it is foreseen that the 5th generation information technology tools and systems will be used. 5. generation of information technology tools and systems differ significantly from previous tools and systems. With the introduction of 5th generation information technology tools and systems, it is intensely discussed that a new industrial revolution will start, namely the process of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0).
The tools and systems which are among the 5th generation information and communication technologies to be effective during the Industry 4.0 process; artificial intelligence a, “cloud computing system”, “digital environment (Internet of Things)” and 3D printer are prominent. In this study, artificial intelligence, which is also called “logical analysis robot which is considered as one of the main tools of information technologies, has been chosen as the main subject. In this context, it is aimed to investigate the possible effects of developing artificial intelligence on journalism sector to journalism sector, which is fully operating using information technologies.
In this study, the concept of artificial intelligence is discussed and the predictions about its scope are analyzed. Then, the current situation regarding the level of usage of information technology in the journalism sector is examined. Then, fictions about the development and use of artificial intelligence for the journalism sector are discussed. Finally, the possible effects of the use of artificial intelligence in the journalism sector are analyzed. As the method of the study, theoretical examination (literature review) and editing methods are used.
