April 9th - 10th 
Nordic AI in Media Summit 2024

The Nordic AI in Media Summit 2024 marks another pivotal year in the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) within the media world. Following last year's successful event, industry professionals will once again convene to explore the ever-expanding role of AI in the media landscape. 


A special focus this year is on the recent breakthroughs in generative AI, which are now making a significant impact in newsrooms. This development has not only transformed the way content is produced and distributed, but also raised new questions about ethics, quality, and regulation in the media industry. The summit will showcase new examples of AI that are currently creating value, reflecting on the experiences and challenges that newsrooms have encountered over the past year.


Together with experts from the Nordics and internationally, we will delve into the potential of AI and discuss how to ensure healthy norms for AI in the news industry. Participants will have ample opportunities to interact with speakers and colleagues through question-and-answer sessions, workshops, and a networking dinner for all attendees on the first day.

Time and place

The summit spans a day and a half from April 9th (13 pm) to April 10th (5 pm) and takes place at PRESSEN (JP/Politikens Hus) by the central square in Copenhagen. 


The program for the Nordic AI in Media Summit is developed by Platform Intelligence in News project (PIN) and the Nordic AI Journalism network, while Ekstra Bladet in JP/Politikens Hus hosts the event.
