Generative AI - AI Ethics in the Newsroom


The talk provided insights into the immense potential of generative AI technologies within the newsroom, all while underscoring the critical importance of AI ethics. It not only introduced the concept of using established frameworks like the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) Code of Ethics, the principles of Data Feminism, and internal auditing frameworks to navigate these ethical concerns but also delved into the various types of AI harms and biases that need to be carefully considered. By addressing these issues, the presentation offered a comprehensive approach to ensuring that the integration of generative AI in journalism upholds the highest standards of ethics, transparency, and fairness, ultimately safeguarding the integrity of news reporting.

I’m enthusiastic about learning how people think and talk about technology and which factors influence them to do so. Through my research, I aim to address the multifaceted impacts of AI systems and digital platforms on people and society and their implications for democracy. More specifically, I look into the discourses, framing efforts, and ethical issues of AI technology and digital platforms.
