Google is putting AI and machine learning technologies into the hands of journalists. The company this morning announced a suite of new tools, Journalist Studio, that will allow reporters to do their work more easily. At launch, the suite includes a host of existing tools as well as two new products aimed at helping reporters search across large documents and visualizing data. The first tool is called Pinpoint and is designed to help reporters work with large file sets -- like those that contain hundreds of thousands of documents. Pinpoint will work as an alternative to using the "Ctrl F" function to manually seek out specific keywords in the documents.
