AI and the Media
Conversation starts at 6.30pm
LIVE ZOOM panel
AI has been a massive talking point this year, in all areas of the media.
Is it friend or foe?
Will AI help media folk to become more creative, freeing them up from mundane tasks, and allowing them to extend their production and editorial horizons?
Or will it replace jobs, promote tired formats and stereotypes, increase misinformation, encourage plagiarism, and undermine copyright?
It’s nearly a year since ChatGTP and generative AI was launched – and, since then, it’s shaken the foundations of the entire global media world.
Half of newsrooms are now apparently working with tools like ChatGTP, AI-written books are starting to appear, and the TV and film industry are using a range of AI tools.
So, to try to make sense of this, the Media Society has put together a high-profile Zoom panel to discuss the impact that the era of AI will have on key aspects of the media – TV and film, journalism, the internet, and publishing.
