Artificial Intelligence, 51│ď╣¤╣┘═°and Journalism

Newsrooms everywhere are grappling with the opportunities and risks of using generative AI tools. The Poynter Institute aims to support journalists in using these tools ethically and responsibly, in service to their audience. We are at the forefront of helping newsrooms develop ethical policies that will guide their use of AI and offering leadership on topics such as visual AI, audience attitudes and changing standards. This page compiles our work and other resources for journalists, leaders and newsrooms working with artificial intelligence.
