“We aim to hire someone with a profound appreciation of both the potential benefits and unintended harms resulting from chatbots, robots, online search, voice assistants, facial recognition, fraud detection, crime prevention and the gamut of other AI applications.”

– Bloomberg Job Posting

Another major news organization is turning AI into a beat. First, the Financial Times hired a full-time AI editor in February this year. Now Bloomberg has posted an ad for an AI “Ethics & Policy” reporter.

Both signal an accelerating impact of large language models and associated new AI tools.


Editor’s note: Bloomberg did not pay for this notice nor asked for it. We’ve posted it as a matter of interest and historical value.
