Artificial intelligence, AI, is taking over the world. It involves computers doing mundane jobs and helping humans to focus on more important and creative tasks. The world of journalism is no different too, and the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of AI in several newsrooms.
In this two-part webinar on AI in journalism on 14 September and 21 September, supported by Facebook Journalism Project India, attendees will find out how AI is helping journalism, how some leading newsrooms benefited from it, and how AI is used for news gathering, production, and distribution. Attendees will also hear about the initiative from London School of Economics collaborating with journalists to leverage the power of AI for the betterment of journalism.
