The FUSE AI Workshop was truly inspiring. We spent the day with diverse, inspiring speakers, teaching us about how AI can be used in journalism, and we even got a little taste of how machine learning works and how we can put it to practical use.
In my line of work, I often write about AI and edit articles on how it is used in various fields, like healthcare, for instance, but I never truly reflected on how it could be used in journalism, or how it can help make my job easier using the simplest techniques.
Not only am I inspired to take on stories that required mining mountains of data for information, but I am also better able to understand the stories I cover. This was a very good opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues and reflect on new ways to do my job.
