Artificial intelligence is a growing industry that has transcend its way as well in the field of journalism. A number of around 70 journalists from different parts of the EU met for the start of the European Youth Science and Media Days, a school on ‘Artificial intelligence and journalism.’

A pioneering conference from Parliament’s Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA) Panel and the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS)
A total of ten AI experts from diverse fields ranging from journalists to policy-makers conducted the conference. Topics ranging from the relation of artificial intelligence with journalism, and the ethics of AI tasks were primarily discussed.

The event was not only forum based having times for thematic panels, trainings, presentations, and a virtual reality experience for the participants.
In algorithmic literacy, the key question is: what can or should be automated and what are inherently human tasks? ‘Augmented journalism’ is a novel concept, which differs from the idea of AI and machines that are smarter than humans.

Further discussions about the ethical tasks of artificial intelligence inside the field of journalism were discussed. Talks about the current function of AIs in the newsroom, and the future of its usage in it were among topics examples.

These events came along with the desire of the Eu to be the global leader of deploying only ethically embedded AI, while promoting innovation and investment.
The participants were able to produce outcomes on selected topics discussed during the event.
