Using AI in journalism: A 6-week programme for small newsrooms

Are you a member of a small newsroom team within the EMEA region, interested to learn how Artificial Intelligence can support journalism? Join the AI Academy, a free online programme that offers a deep-dive into the potential of AI to journalists and media professionals.

The AI Academy is a 6-week online programme that starts in September 2021 and, in its first pilot edition, it is designed for 20 participants from small news organisations (fewer than 50 employees) in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa). 

The programme – designed by the JournalismAI team at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and powered by the Google News Initiative – aims to support small newsrooms that want to learn how AI can be used to support their journalism.

It combines a series of masterclasses given by experts working at the intersection of journalism and artificial intelligence with opportunities for discussion among participants. In addition to that, participants will be guided through the development of shared resources that can support their organisations’ AI-adoption journey during and after the programme.

The Academy is free for selected participants. Applications opened on July 6th, 2021 and should be submitted by August 1st, 2021, at 11:59pm GMT.
