Workshop on the Rise of AI

Status: Open

Organisation: Poynter Institute

Deadline: 14/06/2024

Location: Washington D.C.

Poynter, in partnership with RAND, is hosting the workshop “Reporting on the Rise of AI: A RAND-Poynter Masterclass.”

This free, one-day, in-person workshop will give Washington, D.C.,-area journalists a chance to connect journalists with RAND’s top AI experts in sessions that examine AI and social bias, the workforce, misinformation, and the industry interests that will shape government regulation.

Learning Outcomes

After this workshop, journalists will:

  • Have a clearer picture of the arenas where AI poses the greatest risk of social bias.
  • Be able to better identify the jobs and types of tasks that could be upended by AI.
  • Understand options for government regulation and how those intersect with the interests of private firms.
  • Have a better grasp of the counter measures against foreign misinformation actors and the scope of their activities.

Applicants should be working journalists who live in or are able to travel to the Washington, D.C.,-area to attend this training. The program is geared toward early-to-mid-career journalists.
