The development of artificial intelligence (AI), big data and other communication technologies have multiple implications for the consumption and production of media content. Communication researchers have recently discussed several methodological and thematic challenges, ranging from the ways in which they disrupt the news production and consumption, to the digital transformation of the media and content ecosystems. With the aim to provide a systematic overview of the latest development of communication research in relation to AI and Big Data, this paper has mapped out the main sources, disciplines, and keywords based on a bibliometric analysis of 685 articles collected from Web of Science database. The findings show that the main clusters are “Communication and Sociology”, “Journalism”, and “Information and Telecommunications”, with the cluster of “Communication and Political Science” being in-between them. Also, the visualization of the author keywords indicates the main “Communication and Sociology” cluster includes the main research topics such as surveillance, algorithms, datafication, privacy, ethics, etc., and the “Journalism” cluster includes computational journalism, data journalism, automated journalism. Although future work is needed to provide detailed synthesis, the paper nonetheless provides a succinct summary for communication researchers and professionals to have an overview of the latest discussions.
