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.
- 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.
