This timely book presents a detailed analysis of the role of law and regulation in the utilisation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the media sector. As well as contributing to the wider discussion on law and AI, the book also digs deeper by exploring pressing issues at the intersections of AI, media, and the law. Chapters critically re-examine various rights and responsibilities from the perspectives of incentives for accountable utilisation of AI in the industry.

Featuring chapters from leading scholars in the field, Artificial Intelligence and the Media provides a timely and in-depth research-based contribution to complex themes – especially at the interface of new technology (including AI) with media and regulation. Analysing both legislative and ethical solutions, chapters explore what ‘AI’ and ‘accountability’ mean in terms of media practices, principles, and power relations, as well as how to address the AI revolution with informed law and policy in order to incentivise accountable utilisation of AI and to reduce negative societal impacts.

Offering ideas for further research in the area, this book is key reading for academics and researchers in the fields of information and media law, regulation, and technology law. It may also interest media law practitioners, with research-based guidance for everyday practices and tools to prepare for future developments in the area.
Critical Acclaim
‘Artificial Intelligence and the Media is an urgently needed contribution to the research on AI and its impacts. While much of the scholarship so far has been field-specific, what makes this volume especially poignant is its multidisciplinary approach to the questions about the roles AI can play for media industries but also for media consumers and users as citizens, and to democracy as a whole.’
– Minna Aslama Horowitz, University of Helsinki, Finland and St. John's University, US
