Congratulations to the winners of the AI and the News Open Challenge!Seven projects today are receiving $750,000 to explore and shape the impact that artificial intelligence is having on the field of news and information.
The projects will tackle a variety of problems, including:
Confronting bad actors spreading misinformation through messaging platforms;
Equipping journalists with the technology they need to quickly sift through reams of information;
Tackling emerging threats posed by AI-generated fakes, and more.
The challenge is a project of the Ethics and Governance of AI Initiative, funded in part by Knight Foundation.
