What Can Journalists Do That AI Can’t?
April 11 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
AI technologies have the potential to profoundly change how journalism is produced and consumed. Newsrooms are already experimenting with machine learning to generate outward-facing content such as articles on current affairs, health, real estate listings, quizzes, and sporting events. New advances have increased not only the speed at which large data work can be completed, but also the scope of work that computing intelligence can undertake. As AI and machine learning takes their place in the newsroom, what are the editorial and ethical responsibilities for adopting these new technologies?
The virtual discussion takes place on April 11, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. EST, and will feature Aimee Rinehart, Program Manager for the Associated Press Local News AI Initiative, Hamilton Nolan, Labour Reporting Fellow for In These Times, Gina Chua of Semafor, and Patrick White is Director of the journalism program at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM). Felix M. Simon, of the Oxford Internet Institute will moderate.
