About the Book

If artificial intelligence, in its many forms, scares you, you’re not alone. Journalists in America and around the globe are grappling with how to use, but not abuse, the power of AI to write, edit, and, yes, even create entire news stories for a broad range of audiences. It is entirely possible that you have already read a news story that has been composed with the assistance of AI models. How does one make sense of this new technology within the landscape of journalism and democracy?
This work is among the first books to address the societal, cultural, legal, ethical and journalistic challenges facing the news industry. Containing both scholarly research and interviews with journalists from major news organizations, as well as media educators, this book ponders the place of AI in our lives, but also poses important questions about its future.
