Event description

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

This webinar will focus on AI and visual multimedia. How can AI be used to support production processes - and what problems or risks do you need to be aware of? Participants will be shown how to use tools to generate images and video, and discuss the opportunities and risks. You will be given homework activities and be able to post your work to a closed forum for feedback from your trainer and fellow learners.

Date: 9 April 2024

Time: 12.30-2pm AEDT

Venue: Virtual

Tickets: Free, registration essential

Trainer: TJ Thomson, Senior Lecturer in Visual Communication and Digital Media at RMIT and an affiliate of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society.
