Abstract:
As artificial intelligence continues to evolve and embed itself into the daily functions of the global workforce, this thesis explores how it is leaving a lasting impact on the world of journalism from leaders closest involved with the revolution taking place. The accompanying video explores the current state of artificial intelligence in modern-day newsrooms, the limitations and challenges AI still faces moving forward, how ethics and legal factors could play a role, and how journalism might look in the future as its symbiosis with AI becomes complete.
