Artificial intelligence and journalism

Twitterbots, chatbots, googlebots … The use of journalistic bots has a profound impact on media.

Partnership matters: A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. How can we become one international community striving for the same goals? What role may international organizations play in this context and where are the limits?

Nationalism has been emerging across the globe as the public demonstrates its widespread distrust in the political establishment — very much at a threat to democracy. How can media help dismantle the foundation of populism and to make the complex topic of globalization understandable for all?

With electorates increasingly disinterested with facts and in a time when the digital spread of “fake news” is easier than ever before, how can media rebuild trust and how can we increase media literacy among the public?
