Pinpoint gets AI upgrade to understand key points in documents and organize data

Recognizing the ever-growing demands on journalists, Google News Lab this week announced new ways to empower them with AI technology and training.

Pinpoint, a tool designed specifically for journalists, is receiving an AI-powered upgrade. Reporters can now query documents to quickly grasp key points, saving valuable time during research. Additionally, Pinpoint can now automatically organize data from multiple documents into a single spreadsheet, eliminating tedious manual work.

To further support journalists exploring AI, Google News Initiative is:

  • Funding five new research projects focused on applying generative AI to combat misinformation, promote quality information, and address harmful content.
  • Offering new training materials on Google tools for small and medium-sized news publishers, covering both journalistic and business aspects.

Key takeaways:

  • Pinpoint, a journalists' research tool, gains AI features to summarize documents and organize data.
  • Google News Initiative funds research on AI for fighting misinformation and improving information quality.
  • New training materials help journalists and publishers leverage Google tools effectively.
  • Google continues its commitment to supporting journalists around the world.
