Great young minds create great new ideas, products and stories!  Witness that creativity in action on Tuesday, April 25th at the RJI Tech Showcase.

It’s our fifth annual celebration of technology innovations featuring the work of students from the Missouri School of Journalism and their colleagues in the  MU College of Engineering.  We kick off the 2017 Tech Showcase with presentations by the four finalist teams in the tenth annual RJI Student Competition followed by the announcement of the winners.  This year’s contest focuses on mobile applications of artificial intelligence designed to improve journalism and better serve citizens who rely on high-quality news.

Last year’s winners created Recordly, a service that uses the iPhone, Apple Watch and speech-to-text software from IBM Watson to produce real-time transcripts of reporters’ interviews.  The Recordly team is currently working on their product launch with help from the Mid-Mo Tech Accelerator.

The 2017 RJI Tech Showcase begins at 9 am CST in Fred W. Smith Forum at the Reynolds Journalism Institute.  RJI will also live stream the event.  Watch for a detailed schedule of student presentations in mid-April.
