Artificial Intelligence: Harnessing Opportunities In News (Session 3)

This online session will take place via Zoom at 11:00-12:00 CET.


Artificial intelligence creates great opportunities. Whether it is making sense of your archives or automatically editing sports highlights, new technology can help you work more effectively and efficiently. In this session, faculty member Mark Egan will be joined by Mukul Devichand, BBC Senior Editor of Voice and AI. They'll discuss the latest developments in the field and how you can use them in your daily workflows.  


Mukul says: “If the era of social media, fake news and filter bubbles has taught us anything, it’s that it’s important to master new technologies so that the principles of public service broadcasting endure.” Read the full interview here.


Topics covered in this session will include:


How AI can automate your workflows

Case studies of how AI is being implemented

Data: How to make the most of machine learning and AI with regards to data
Digital news gathering: How processes can be improved using the latest technology
