AI and Journalism: The Massive Consequences When Truth is AI

Mar 12, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

AI is a promise and a threat, even for trusted journalism sources such as CNN, AP, The Washington Post, WSJ and your local newsroom. How can these companies manage the influx of AI-generated images and video that are currently impossible to detect and have real world consequences? Is this another threat on democracy? Could AI images swing an election? Incite violence? And what are the new responsibilities and challenges of media when it comes to the use of AI, by others and by the industry itself? It’s a large moving target our expert panelists will discuss from the frontlines.
