The project explores core regulative challenges of news automation in the era of artificial intelligence (AI). Use of algorithms and machine learning changes news production in ways that affect journalistic practices and, by raising new issues, challenges the current legislation. The project examines the need to revisit traditional copyright doctrines, such as authorship, as well as regulatory mechanisms to secure incentives to produce news on the market. Additionally, the project analyzes liability for damages caused by machine-generated content as well as theoretical aspects of AI and agency. The project identifies legal issues that could hinder responsible use of AI-based applications in news production and develops guidance for developers, media companies, and policymakers on how to tackle those issues.
