March 16:  AI in the newsroom—use or abuse?

Interested in how artificial intelligence is used—or not used—in a newsroom? What AI tools are already used? Hear Corey Hutchins report on his findings on these issues on Saturday, March 16, at the Arvada Library.

Hosted by Colorado Press Women, this free event celebrates Sunshine Week, March 10-16, 2024, a week to focus on public records and open government and, this year, how AI affects freedom of information, in particular.

Hutchins is co-director of the Colorado College Journalism Institute, and he has researched how several Colorado newsrooms use AI tools. He writes the weekly e-newsletter “Inside the News in Colorado,” which is underwritten by the Colorado Media Project.

At Colorado College, Hutchins teaches Writing the News, Inbox Journalism: Writing for Newsletters,  The Future and Sustainability of Local News, as well as Introduction to Journalism, and more. He was named Educator of the Year by the Colorado Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists in 2023. For nearly a decade he wrote about the local news industry for Columbia Journalism Review, and in another life he covered politics in South Carolina where he was twice named journalist of the year by the state press association. He recently wrote the chapter on media for the once-a-decade book “American Decades.”

CPW has reserved a large meeting room at the Arvada Library, 7525 W. 57th (about one mile north of I-70 in Olde Town Arvada) for the March 16 event. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. for coffee, tea and pastries. The program begins at 10 a.m. The event is free, but donations are appreciated to cover expenses.

Questions and requests for a Zoom link can be directed to Sandy Nance.
