Google launches AI course for journalists

Google has announced the launch of a free training course for journalists to understand the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Produced by JournalismAI (an initiative of Polis, the international journalism think tank at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Google News Initiative), in collaboration with VRT News and the Google News Initiative, the course is available in 17 languages. It offers journalists an introduction to machine learning, while also allowing them to learn how to train a machine learning model and why it is important to use it responsibly.
