Tuesday, November 21

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, has become a buzzword in recent months. But AI has been part of everyday life for many years — whether it's used in your search engine or automated soap dispensers. In this session, reporters and editors will learn about important concepts around AI, how technology companies and governments alike may be using it, and what practical steps they can take to investigate the impact AI has on their communities.

Speakers:

  • Boyoung Lim, Senior Editor and AI Accountability Network Manager, Pulitzer Center
  • Lam Thuy Vo, reporter & associate professor, The Markup & The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism

Forests, Trees, and Data

Tuesday, November 21
4:20 - 5:20pm SAST

This work was published by Le Monde and InfoCongo and received an immediate response from the Ministry of Forestry. Bring a laptop.

Speakers:

  • Madeleine Ngeunga, Africa Editor, Pulitzer Center
