DAIDALOS – AI as a New Frontier for Journalism: Where to Find Value in Tech-Driven Journalism

We invite you to the online discussion AI as a New Frontier for Journalism: Where to Find Value in Tech-Driven Journalism that will explore the topic with an international panel of academics and practitioners. This is the third event of a discussion series called DDALOS co-organized by the AI Center FEE CTU and our friends at Machine Learning Meetups (MLMU). Through six lectures planned for 2021 and 2022, we wish to bring together scientists, students and experts from various fields to tackle the questions of AI research and social responsibility. Specifically, the cycle will cover the following topics related to AI: creativity, journalism, fairness, sustainability, transhumanism and the opening lecture on the history of AI.

Event description
As new technological solutions continue to emerge, journalism has a responsibility to utilize any and all resources presenting themselves in a conscious manner. The rising popularity of AI-based systems has shown unprecedented promise for researchers and journalists alike. Can this precipitous development lead to decrements in trustworthiness in the eyes of the end consumer? What are the downsides of tech-heavy journalism? Where is the value in tech-driven journalism and is AI a true friend or a deceptive foe?

The discussion will be hosted by Anna Vošalíková from the Czech Radio.
