From automated news writing to personalized content recommendations, AI has the potential to transform the way news is produced, distributed, and consumed. What does this look like, and how can the media ensure that AI is used responsibly? In this webinar from smartocto, attendees will be guided through a comprehensive exploration of the latest trends and applications of AI in the newsroom. With a focus on smartocto’s use of ChatGPT to provide valuable insights into company data, attendees will gain practical advice on how to harness the power of AI to drive their own journalistic practices forward.
This one-hour webinar from The Writers’ Co-op is perfect for any freelancers or staffed journalists who are “newsletter curious.” Freelance journalists Chris La Tray and Melinda Wenner Moyer will share how they developed their own newsletters, including the ins and outs of identifying their target audience and treating the newsletter as a business.
