The Artificial Intelligence Journalism Research and Forecasting (AIJRF) a leading global organization in research, forecasting and shaping the future of AI and the Fourth and Fifth Industrial Revolutions and Media of Metaverse, has announced the final results of the Global Artificial Intelligence Journalism Index (GAIJI), the world's first index designed to measure, track and visualize the performance of media outlets using AI journalism technologies in producing, publishing and promoting content.
“The Global Artificial Intelligence Journalism Index (GAIJI) has been started on over two years, with a study of more than 60 international and Arab media outlets ", Said Dr. Mohamed Abdulzaher, the president of the GAIJI. Adding that: “GAIJI team has been conducted with the study sample of media outlets through a questionnaire, and some personal and telephone interviews, to ensure the validity of the information, and the most prominent applications that are being worked on within the media outlets.”
"Through the GAIJI Global Index we have reached to 60 media outlets around the world, including media and entertainment companies and manufacturers are using the AI tools and apps in creating media content " said Abdulzaher. He added: "The current results depend on the number of samples that have already participated in the questionnaires and interviews. "
Abdulzaher confirmed that: "A number of media outlets may have significant experience with artificial intelligence tools and applications, however, they have not been included in the GAIJI program, which prevented us from publishing any relevant data or information, as well as some journalists affiliated with certain departments or other departments which may have new experiences but did not participate."
Overall, the main results revealed that the most AI applications used in automated news and content are developed in two regions: the Americas (43.01%) and Europe (39.78%). Our findings are similar to those of previous studies on other technological developments in the news media ecosystem.
For example, big data analysis was first developed in the United States and European countries such as the United Kingdom and the Nordic countries. The GAIJI index presented many international experiences in the use of artificial intelligence apps for automated content creation and the classification of media outlets.
