This is a special Hacks/Hackers LDN meetup, focusing entirely on the intersection of journalism and artificial intelligence (AI).

We will host the launch of the Journalism AI report, the result of a one-year collaboration between Polis – the journalism think-tank at the London School of Economics and Political Science – and the Google News Initiative.

The report collects the findings obtained via a global survey, and combines the experiences with AI technologies of dozens of news organisations across the world to paint a picture of what AI can, should and shouldn't be for journalism.

Alongside will be presentations of some of the most interesting case-studies of the use of AI in journalism.

What's the ticket release schedule?

Free tickets will be released on the following schedule:

  • First batch: Monday 28th October at 1pm

  • Second batch: Friday 1st November at 1pm

  • Final batch and opening of waiting list: Tuesday 5th November at 1pm

Important: We need every person's individual name, which means you can't book a ticket for someone else (sorry!) This is for security at our venue. If two tickets are booked under the same name, we've set up a system where the duplicates will be automatically cancelled. Thanks for understanding!

We do understand that sometimes people need to cancel at the last minute. Due to these cancellations, we release more tickets than the venue has capacity for.

We don’t like to turn people away, but we have to operate a first come first served policy. To make sure you get a seat, please arrive as early as you can. We suggest 6.30pm for a 7pm start. The evening wraps at around 8.45pm and we all clear out and head to the pub at 9pm.

We keep as many tickets free as possible but, if you want to skip straight into the event, you can purchase a supporter ticket too.

All proceeds get ploughed back into the event and – one day we hope – we might be able to raise enough to add more events to the list!
