Webinar: How to use artificial intelligence in your newsroom

By Francesco Marconi

See examples of how AP is deploying artificial intelligence and learn how journalists can take advantage of existing technology to start automating and augmenting their own reporting.

This month, we hosted a webinar to discuss how smart machines are changing the way reporters think and conduct journalism. The presentation includes real examples of how AP is deploying artificial intelligence and how journalists can take advantage of existing technology to start automating and augmenting their own reporting.

Watch the webinar and learn:

- The ethical concerns related to implementing AI in the newsroom: How might that implementation disrupt workflow in the newsroom? What about the potential of unchecked algorithmic biases? And how should journalists learn to interact with these new technologies?

- The particular applications of AI in the newsroom: What is machine learning? Natural language? Speech? Vision and robotics? How do they all work? And how are they applicable to journalism?

- The impact of AI in the news industry: How can AI help newsrooms accurately scale and diversify their news coverage?

This webinar is an important introductory overview of AI in journalism and provides further context for our “The future of Augmented Journalism: A guide for newsrooms in the age of smart machines” report.
