Making AI Intelligible for Public Service Journalists

Project Details


Journalism has an AI intelligibility problem; the rapid growth of applied artificial intelligence (AI) in news production has left a knowledge and skills gap amongst journalists that threatens their ability to fulfil their public service remit responsibly, ethically, and effectively. Building from a successful EPSRC-funded project that co-produced a strategy for fostering newsworkers’ understanding and agency in respect of AI, this action-research project will work with the BBC to co-design and deliver a process of intervention and iteration. By hosting cultural probe-driven multidisciplinary workshops to explore requirements for design and adoption of value-aligned AI, it will give journalists a voice in developing newsrooms of the future.
