WHO'S CHOOSING THE NEWS; ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR PUBLIC MEDIA DISCOURSE
preprintposted on 2020-10-07, 17:14 authored by Sina SummersSina Summers
This thesis inquiry investigates how algorithms operate generally to affect the dissemination of news information to audiences. This research aimed to find what the implications of AI used in these ways are for traditional roles played by media news in public life – such as informing the public in the public’s interests and enabling informed public discourse. This research asks also to what extent the use and effect of AI algorithms are transparent to audiences and how this level of understanding by audiences (or lack of understanding) affects the informing role of media.
