Artificial Intelligence in the editor’s seat

Great interview of co-founder Frederic Filloux by Zakhar Protsiuk in The Fix.

“Defining what makes a good story is devilishly tricky. There are so many factors – the pace and style of the narrative, the power of the insights uncovered, how unique the sources are…
