Event description

Join us for the third of our 8-part webinar series on AI and journalism, supported by the Walkley Public Fund. 

Each session will provide an overview of a specific area of journalism, explore opportunities and risks, and provide a practical activity or question about implementation to try out as homework. Participants will be invited to post their work to a closed forum for feedback from your trainer. You can also provide constructive feedback to homework posted by others.

This webinar will focus on AI for investigative journalism. How can AI tools carry out tasks that are difficult and time-consuming for journalists? What problems or risks do you need to be aware of?
