About the Presentation

AI services that provide responses to prompts, such as ChatGPT, have ignited passionate discussions over the future of learning, work, and creativity. AI-enabled text-to-image generators, such as Midjourney, pose profound questions about the purpose, meaning, and value of images yet have received considerably less research attention, despite the implications they raise for both the production and consumption of images. This presentation explores emerging research that identifies how news editors or equivalent perceive generative visual AI and outlines the challenges and opportunities they see for the technology in relation to their newsrooms. It also identifies the extent to which select newsrooms in the U.S.A., Australia, and Germany have policies governing how generative visual AI is used or, if not, the principles that would inform the development of such policies.
 

About Our Guest

Dr. T.J. Thomson is a senior lecturer at RMIT and an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellow. His research is united by its focus on visual communication. A majority of T.J.'s research centres on the visual aspects of news and journalism and on the concerns and processes relevant to those who make, edit, and present visual news. He has broader interests in digital media, journalism studies, and visual culture and often focuses on under-represented identities, attributes, and environments in his research. T.J. is committed to not only studying visual communication phenomena but also working to increase the visibility, innovation, and quality of how research findings are presented, accessed, and understood.
