Prior to The Block, Kopit was Bloomberg’s first-ever social media czar, responsible for designing ways to utilize social media and artificial intelligence to detect and gather breaking news, while filtering out mis and disinformation.

Earlier, as Breaking News Managing Editor for the Americas, Kopit led a team of reporters that wrote “this-just-in” stories for Bloomberg Terminal subscribers using traditional journalistic strategies, algorithmic systems, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. She also was part of the team that spearheaded Bloomberg’s incorporation of real-time data from social media platforms, such as Twitter and Weibo, for news gathering and reporting.

A graduate of the University of Michigan and Brooklyn Law School, Kopit is a member of the New York State bar and lives in Brooklyn, NY with her family.
