What newsroom leaders think about the future of journalism and AI

#artificialintelligence

Jack Clark, co-chair of the 2022 AI Index Report published by the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI), has declared that "2021 was the year that AI went from an emerging technology to a mature technology--we're no longer dealing with a speculative part of scientific research, but instead something that has real-world impact, both positive and negative". The report highlights that private sector investment in AI doubled in that year. Is it adopting AI at a similar pace? And what impact is AI having? JournalismAI gathered a group of news media executives from around the world in a private seminar at the International Journalism Festival to discuss their AI hopes and fears and strategies.


Third of workers think their jobs are at risk from automation

#artificialintelligence

New research* has found that one in three (37%) employees consider their current job to be at risk from automation and digital transformation. Around a third of women (33%) and over two-fifths (43%) of men consider it likely or very likely that automation could replace their jobs. While over half (54%) of those aged 18-to-24-years-old, compared to around a quarter (27%) of over-45s, believe that their job might not exist one day. Just because an occupation could become fully automated, however, doesn't mean it necessarily will. A more widely accepted view is that many roles will adapt and evolve and that new roles will be created, as even more work tasks and business processes – particularly those that are more routine or repetitive – can be done efficiently by machines.


How AI can help fight misinformation - ITU Hub

#artificialintelligence

Disinformation has become a global problem affecting citizens, governments and businesses. Identifying and isolating so-called "fake news" poses a major challenge across today's growing digital information ecosystem. But advances in artificial intelligence (AI) could increasingly help online information users sort out fact from fiction. The Global Disinformation Index (GDI) collects data on how misinformation – or disinformation, when deliberate – travels and spreads. The index, put out by a US-based non-profit organization, can help governments, media professionals, and other web users assess the trustworthiness of online content.


Intel CEO expects chip shortage to last until at least 2024

ZDNet

Since completing a degree in journalism, Aimee has had her fair share of covering various topics, including business, retail, manufacturing, and travel. She continues to expand her repertoire as a tech journalist with ZDNet. Intel chief Pat Gelsinger has predicted that the global chip shortage will remain a challenge for the industry until at least 2024, particularly in areas such as foundry capacity and tool availability. Despite this forecast, Gelsinger outlined that Intel is in a "good position" to manage the constraints that arise as a result of the supply chain shortage. "In fact, Intel is rising to meet this challenge," he told investors on Thursday during a first-quarter earnings call.

Disinformation

#artificialintelligence

Over the last four weeks, we have explored the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in real-world scenarios where automation can provide positive support to those in need and economy as a whole. However, AI can also be misused when in the hands of ill-intentioned people engaged in the global power-play. One of its manifestations is the increased weaponization of AI for the purposes of destabilizing the power balance. This presents a complex challenge for national governments as well as a growing threat to the global security of humanity. It is therefore in this context that this week's blog explores the positive and negative usage of Artificial Intelligence.

Artificial intelligence is worth nothing if it does not serve human beings, say S&Ds

#artificialintelligence

The report on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a Digital Age was adopted yesterday in the special committee of the European Parliament, with the votes of the Socialists and Democrats. We made sure the text includes provisions for socially responsible and human-centric AI that works for people and does not undermine their rights and human dignity. "Today our group has sent a strong message to the European Commission and the member states: AI in the EU should be human-centric and ethical, developed and used for the common good and the best interests of our citizens and businesses. I have no doubt the competitiveness of the EU depends on the development and use of artificial intelligence. What we, the Socialists and Democrats, fought for was to find the balance between this and guaranteeing full respect for the rights and freedoms of citizens. "We are convinced that the development and application of artificial intelligence in the EU must not go against the achievements of the S&D Group in the area of protecting personal data.


Banks Using AI Are Ripe For Russian Sabotage: Report - AI Summary

#artificialintelligence

Banks and other financial institutions utilizing artificial intelligence may be uniquely susceptible to retaliatory Russian cyberattacks as taxing international sanctions worsen, experts warn. Those fears, highlighted in a recent Wall Street Journal report, comes as Russia's war on Ukraine trundles forward into its second month and as an unprecedented barrage of international sanctions continue to chip away at the Russian economy. Andrew Burt, a former policy adviser to the head of the cyber division at the FBI, described AI vulnerabilities as "significant and very widely overlooked" at many financial institutions that have come to rely on them. "I haven't seen any real abilities in terms of being able to defend against the flood of disinformation," Montreal AI Ethics Institute Founder Abhishek Gupta told The Journal. While those security weaknesses are cause for concern even in the best of times, government leaders including President Biden worry Russia may use cyberattacks to lash out against these institutions as sanctions take a continued toll.
