In recent months, increased media attention has been given to AI-driven applications like Stable Diffusion, Dall-E, GPT-3, ChatGPT and Bard. These programmes are commonly referred to as Generative AI: technologies that learn from existing data in order to produce new content, including audio, (realistic) images and art, chat, text and code. Though these technological innovations have sparked renewed enthusiasm and interest for the field of AI, their potential to disrupt and transform has also been met with concern.
In an effort to demystify the use of Generative AI, the AI, Media and Democracy Lab is organising a series of events that will explore and discuss the pitfalls and possibilities of the technology’s transformative impact on the media and journalism industries: How can the sector reap the benefits of artificially created content in line with the industries’ values, such as personal creativity, autonomy, user agency, transparency, objectivity, diversity, trust and authenticity?
