‘Virtual newsreaders, stock reports and election results written up by algorithms, and news organisations dishing up articles based on what you’ve clicked on are all examples (of) artificial intelligence in action.’
Journalists are ‘only scratching the surface of what’s possible’ with AI in their work says New Zealand public broadcaster, Radio New Zealand, after interviewing Professor Charlie Beckett of LSE. Beckett heads POLIS, the LSE journalism think-tank, and authored a global report about journalism and AI, ‘New Powers, New Responsibilities.’
The podcast conversation runs 22:05m. A link is embedded in the RNZ story.
