Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has teamed up with 16 partner organizations to create the Paris Charter on AI and Journalism.

The charter defines 10 principles, including:

The participating organizations include:
“Together with our partners, we call on reporters, editors and news organizations around the world to take ownership of these principles, to proclaim them, and to implement them in what they do,” Christophe Deloire, RSF secretary-general.
