9mobile trains journalists

9mobile has trained some journalists across media houses in Nigeria on Artificial Intelligence-powered journalism.

The training, which was the third edition of the telco’s  capacity building initiative, designed to acquaint journalists with emerging trends in journalism, was  by multimedia producer and social media strategist, Usifo Omozokpea, who is currently the Audience Development Manager (West Africa) at The Conversation Africa.

According to Omozokpea, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence process or human activities through machines, especially computer systems.

He noted that there are specific applications of AI which includes expert systems, natural language processing, speech recognition and machine vision.

These tools, he said, enhance the job of media practitioners and can help them collaborate better.

According to him, there are various tools that have been designed to address specific media needs.

He urged participants to take advantage of the various AI tools at their disposal to improve their professional practice.

Speaking on the session, the Executive Director, Regulatory and Corporate Affairs, 9mobile, Abdulrahman Ado, represented by 9mobile’s PR Lead, Chineze Amanfo, said that the knowledge shared during the training session had proven to be useful to all participants.

Ado noted that the knowledge gained by participants during the training will obviously aid them to work smarter and even create room for intelligent collaboration with their colleagues in a seamless and professional manner.
