The Anambra State ICT Agency, in collaboration with Activ8 Hub, on Thursday, hosted a workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Journalism for media professionals. The workshop took the practitioners through emerging AI models, such as ChatGPT, Gemini, Bing AI, Microsoft Copilot, among others, with the aim of enhancing their journalistic practice. With a focus on leveraging AI to bolster productivity, fact-checking, and narrative crafting, the session illuminated the path for journalists to integrate these cutting-edge tools into their work responsibly. The event also marked a significant stride in Anambra’s technological advancement, as was highlighted by Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata, CFA, the MD/CEO of Anambra State ICT Agency. In the words of Chukwuma Mezie-Okoye, co-founder of Activ8 Hub, “The message is clear: embrace AI, not as a replacement, but as a complement to journalistic excellence, shaping a more informed, discerning, and connected world.”
