Three weeks ago we launched the JournalismAI Collab Challenges, a new series of collaborative experiments that bring together media organisations to explore innovative solutions that improve journalism via the use of AI technologies. 

43 news organisations from 31 countries applied to take part in the 🌎 Americas and 🌍 EMEA Challenges. In a couple of weeks, we will announce the line-ups of the two teams that will work together for the next six months with the support of our lead partners: the Knight Lab at Northwestern University in the Americas, and BBC News Labs and Clwstwr in EMEA.

Today, it’s time to complete the global puzzle.

Opening the Collab Challenge in Asia-Pacific

We are excited to announce that JournalismAI will host the Collab Challenge in 🌏 Asia-Pacific (APAC) in partnership with Bennett University’s Times School of Media and Computer Science Engineering Department.

The Times School of Media is an interdisciplinary professional school whose programmes have been developed in conjunction with the Times Group, India’s largest media conglomerate. The School’s programmes place special emphasis on imparting skills required to succeed in today’s highly competitive, and rapidly changing, media environment.

The Challenge will focus on: How might we use AI and audience insights to help newsrooms design more relevant and interactive news narratives?

If your organisation is interested in participating, you can find out more about it in this One-Pager. The link to the application form is included in the Programme Explainer.

Applications close at 11:59 PM GMT on April 30th.

If you have any questions, please email Lakshmi at lakshmi@journalismai.info with the subject line “APAC Collab Challenge”.



 

JournalismAI is a project of POLIS – the journalism think-tank at the London School of Economics and Political Science – and it’s powered by the Google News Initiative.
