After the success of the first AI course, the Knight Center is arranging a second online course, called “Generative AI for journalists: Discovering what data can do.”

The course is led by Sil Hamilton, Hacks/Hackers' AI researcher at large, and will focus on developing and implementing AI applications into your workflow. The course runs from mid-November to mid-December, and the $95 registration fee offers a more advanced curriculum for a more limited number of students. A certificate of completion is included.

  • The Partnership on AI, which Hacks/Hackers is a member of, recently released their AI Adoption for Newsrooms guide. The guide offers a new 10 step process based on PAI’s already existing five principles for AI adoption.
  • Media Matters, a nonprofit reporting on the media industry, has been served with a lawsuit from Elon Musk for a story about X’s advertising choices. Musk’s suit claims the outlet manipulated the platform’s algorithm, but doesn’t deny the story’s claims outright.
  • More than half of the counties in the US now have a single news outlet, if they have one at all, according to a new report by the Medill School. In 2023, local newspapers either closed or merged with other outlets at a rate of more than one a week.
