The use of artificial intelligence can facilitate journalistic work on various levels; in addition to distributing news, AI systems can now take over research tasks as well as write articles themselves. In the latest survey conducted as part of MeMo:KI, which polls the German population’s attitudes to AI fortnightly, the focus was precisely on this topic.
How does the German population assess the influence of AI in journalistic activities? Within the framework of the 4th Factsheet of the Opinion Monitor, this very question was investigated. The results are quite ambivalent, even if the use of AI is viewed rather critically in many areas.
