Good morning. I am JV, Associate Editor of The Pillar Publication. I am one of the participants of RTSPC8, I learned a lot from the discussion of Mr. Kevin Halal about AI and Journalism. I learned that AI shouldn't be a great threat to journalists, instead it should be a tool to help journalists produced quality outputs. We should not let AI control us especially in verifying the information. It is still our great role to verify the information we share especially to our audience.

Hi I'm Greg from The Pillar, UEP. After the discussions, I realized that artificial intelligence should not be feared like an untamed beast. What we should do is to learn about A.I., try to understand how it works, and explore its functions in order to use it as a valuable asset that we could utilize in our field. I strongly believe that artificial intelligence will never replace the relentless power of human ingenuity. We will always find ways to adapt in today's emerging era.

AI is both a blessing and a curse. With the emergence of AI, humanity in general faces the threat of AI because of bias, fake news and some ethical concerns. However, if we are extra vigilant and conscious on when and how to use AI guided by the community chat guidelines as echoed by Ms. Pia Ranada, we can safely use AI. Kudos to the Rappler's community chat guidelines, a countermeasure launched to fight against destructive use of AI in a community. As long as we remain firm in our journalistic ethics, we can instead use AI against AI. This is Charelle Catunhay, from the Pillar (UEP). #RTSPC8 #AICANNEVERREPLACEDJOURNALISTS #USEAIASATOOL

"It's just like raising a child." This is the line that was engraved in my mind after the discussions on campus journalism and AI. In some parts, such as the necessity for human moderators and double checking, I agree that it is indeed like raising a child. However, I realized that the teachings we inculcate in a child is a cognitive investment, because humans learn lessons. The moment they develop a sense of pattern and recurrence from moralistic and intellectual undertaking, there will come a time when they can already practice them independently. Humans develop personalities. I believe that this is something that A.I. will never possess, no matter how much human control we impose. That is why it is like holding a line. The moment we remove our grip, it snaps, and the consequences may be unhinged. This also propelled me to think that it is risky to invest in A.I. because it is a constant human work as well. A.I. must not be allowed to work by itself. As a journalist who juggle multiple responsibilities, the constant assertion of other people that A.I. can take a huge role in the practice of our oath is still a hazy vision, citing the various loopholes and lapses that even the ones who patronize the technology are still working on. Issues include the lack of provenance, inadequacy of proper credit, and even information hallucinations. With all these, I will still stand firm on the belief that journalism is a humanistic work, and only humans, who exude passion, empathy, and relatability, will be the ones who can do the job right.

As a campus journalist, I appreciate Rappler's initiative to create a news app exclusively run by journalists. What we've always feared as media folks is that our sources could be tampered with by external pressures; in other words, censorship can affect how we want to deliver our articles. With this app, we can have access to stories bounded in truth and truth alone. I learned that this app also provides us with a network of other like-minded people who are actively shaping a society where press freedom is observed. What's more, I think it's progressive for journalists to fully recognize how AI and humans can work together to arrive at better outputs. For instance, we learned in the discussions how the app uses both AI and human moderators to regulate the information shared by its users. I also appreciate how the app does not tighten its grip on people's privacy by being based on the Matrix Protocol, which gives the app a secure and decentralized communication system. Furthermore, I understood from the discussions how, with the use of AI, this app employs machine learning algorithms to infer users' preferences to show content that interests them. Additionally, I think community chats in the app are a good way to bring people together. This way, we can build stronger links and tap into people whose stories deserve a conversation at the table. Afterall, as the discussions shared, community chats are there to deliver news, gather arguments, and even connect users with policymakers. I believe these aspects show genuine public service, something that Filipinos need today. Above all, perhaps the best thing I learned during the discussions is how AI today can be used as a guide in journalism. But as journalists, we must not allow it to fully dehumanize us to the point where it tampers with our storytelling. This app is revolutionary and RELEVANT. How it's empathetic to its users makes me think how much change can happen when media prioritizes welfare. -k from tp

Iโ€™m Yhanna Mae A. Deliman an Associate Editor for Operations from Southern Leyte State University-Tomas Oppus Campus.

The information given by Maโ€™am Pia Ranada and Sir Don Kevin Hapal led me to the idea that there is an endless possibility when we use Al to amplify our own intelligence.

We must embrace the existence of AI.
We must adapt through utilizing AI.
We must cope up with change brought by AI.

As long as every individual is educated and well-informed, and ethical considerations are strictly followed in the usage and development of AI tools, threats are mitagated and opportunities underlined by AI are capitalized.

Good thinking! I also believe that the narrative that AI will and can replace journalists is misplaced and a misunderstanding of what AI systems are [currently] capable of. I used the child metaphor to explain that AI systems can be influenced and are only as good as the data they're trained on - definitely not to say they can, like a child, develop personalities [although this is actually an ongoing debate, but I do think at most, they will be able to "simulate" emotions]. I think also, we tend to exaggerate how efficient AI tools are. As newsrooms, we have to balance innovation with integrity, so that means we have to be open but prudent with our use of AI. They may sound magical and efficient, but you also have to take into account the amount of time, resource, and effort you'd need to invest in reviewing the AI output and ensuring that they're upholding high editorial standards (so yes, there's always a human in the loop). Nonetheless, it's also not wise to disregard opportunities that emerging technologies can bring to our reporting. A lot of groundbreaking investigative work has been made possible with the help of AI tools that make analyzing data easier - such as the investigation of the Panama Papers. The human touch is definitely irreplaceable. It's not like these tools can build relationship with sources and connect emotionally with readers - both very important in our practice.
