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.

You can learn about the winners on the initiative’s website.
