50 Media Executives on AI and Automation. Findings from the Nordic Survey Study of AI in Journalism
When automating parts of news production, a central challenge to management is to ensure that fundamental journalistic values may be shaped and enacted.

In her speech the researcher Jenny Wiik presents the findings with focus on three aspects: 1) organisational knowledge and AI maturity, 2) AI strategies, and 3) collaborations in AI innovations.
