Artificial Intelligence in Journalism
Journalism is undergoing a process of change in the wake of digitalisation. Artificial intelligence (AI) plays an important role in this process and is already shaping the everyday life of many newsrooms: For example, AI systems support research, facilitate the dissemination of news and create automated texts. This requires that AI technologies are developed, trained and integrated into editorial work responsibly and according to journalistic quality standards as well as socially anchored ethical principles.
In a current white paper, the experts of the Working Group IT Security, Privacy, Legal and Ethical Framework of Plattform Lernende Systeme show how a responsible use of AI tools in journalism can succeed and which framework conditions have to be created for this.
