NPR Works On Framework For Use Of AI

NPR is “actively engaged in developing a framework and set of principles to guide its decision-making on all aspects of AI (Artificial Intelligence) investment and usage,” NPR announced in an email this week, according to Jefferson Public Radio. 

The email said NPR would consult with a range of experts covering such topics as editorial, legal, security and data governance.

  • In addition, the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) issued guidelines for the use of AI in journalism. These include asking the following questions:
  • Can you fully understand the capabilities and source material for the AI program before implementation?
  • What are your safeguards to protect against inadvertent plagiarism?
  • Can you independently verify the AI tool’s accuracy?
  • Are there opportunities to test the AI tool prior to publication?
  • What is your newsroom system and set of expectations for human review before publication?
