Discussing AI and the Future of Journalism

ChatGPT is far from alone. There is a whole raft of emerging artificial intelligence trends that those of us who report, write and edit the news find both exciting and disturbing. One expert has predicted that 90% of all online content could be AI-generated by 2025.

On March 13, the Deadline Club brought together a group of experts for a critical discussion about the intersection between AI and journalism. In this talk, moderated by Steve Dunlop and Robert Anthony, panelists touched on a wide range of important topics, including:

  • What features of AI hold the most peril for journalists?
  • Which hold the most promise?
  • How does an AI program actually work?
  • Does AI threaten journalism jobs?
  • Can journalists investigate AI tools? If so, how?
  • Are there practical hacks for determining whether content is AI-generated or real?


Also included is a previously recorded conversation with Daniel Verten, head of creative at Synthesia.
