Google is known for making innovations, for which today’s news is the perfect example. Google, one of the top web browsers want to create a new platform to address the needs of news industry with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
To fulfill the dream of catering news industry, Google has associated with Polis, the international journalism think-tank at London School of Economics and Political Science, to develop “Journalism AI” project.
This development is part of Google News Initiative (GNI), and its motif is to train and research for newsrooms on meeting both AI and journalism.
“As part of ‘Journalism AI’, next year, we’ll publish a global survey about how the media is currently using — and could further benefit from — this technology,” Google said in a statement at GNI Innovation Forum.
The tech giant recently introduced Google Earth Studio after strenuous test with its partners since last couple of years. This is an animation tool for 3D imagery as well as Google Earth’s satellite which offers new techniques to graphics specialists for Google Earth imagery in storytelling.
“We’re inviting newsrooms around the world to start using the product for the first time,” Google said as per the agency.
The Asia-Pacific Google News Initiative (GNI) Innovation Challenge will help to finance some projects up to $300,000 and finance over 70 percent of the total project cost.
