Journalism versus artificial intelligence

In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about the fact that artificial intelligence will change our future – including the future of journalism itself. Automated bots could write short messages, and some television stations are already checking whether a computer-generated persona will be able to conduct a news program in a similar way to a living person. The experiment was carried out by, among others, CNN News “hired “AI Kaur” – a virtual host who speaks with a robotic voice and transmits the generated text in a way that is distant from the facial expressions of a real human being.

Experts argue whether artificial intelligence is an opportunity or a threat to us. Some people claim that AI will never replace the creative human brain, which is able to spontaneously combine various facts to create a new quality – artificial intelligence is based only on the “input” it has in its resources and is not able to generate anything new. Nevertheless, in an “interview” with a robot powered by artificial intelligence that creates images, the journalist asked directly whether it considers itself a threat to humans. Ai-Da had no doubt:

I am not a threat. But some of the technologies I represent may become such a threat – replied the program controlling one of the most modern robot artists in a conversation with a British journalist.
