Local newsrooms form the foundation of a healthy information ecosystem, providing their communities with the context and meaning needed to make sense of a complex world. AI techniques can help ensure a sustainable future for these organizations, but it will require the involvement of both journalists and technologists, particularly those at the platforms distributing content, to do so ethically and responsibly.

By bringing local newsrooms into conversation with technologists, researchers, and civil society organizations, the Local News Workstream seeks to identify major ethical challenges and collect insights on responsible AI practices. Through this multistakeholder process, we can develop best practices for newsrooms seeking to use AI tools ethically and without unintended consequences.
