22.06.2022 16:00  – 18:00 

On Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022, Prof. Dr. Mario Haim (Chair of the Department of Media and Communication, LMU Munich)  will present the lecture "AI and News Online: Production, Distribution and Use" a lecture of the lecture series "Artificial Intelligence in Science and Society."

Journalism is a central pillar for democratic societies. Over the last several years, however, it has faced severe challenges, not least due to a "platformization" of news, competition from "fake news," and a widespread unwillingness to pay for news online. Importantly, not only are many of these challenges driven by AI, but also journalism‘s tools to fight these challenges are largely AI-driven. This lecture provides insights and overview of the latest developments and applications of AI for journalism and news online.

The lecture is a component of the new minor "AI as a major Minor" (AIM@LMU,, currently in the planning phase, and open to all LMU students.
