Abstract

This study attempts to explore how newspapers are portraying the impact of Artificial Intelligence, while considering the social and economic contexts where these new developments are unfolding. Thus, the research analyses articles from four English languaged newspapers. First it looks into the sample for the ‘voices’ or sources that journalists are relying on when writing on this issue and secondly, it analyses the articles more in depth to uncover how the narratives and discourses around the short-term effect and long-term effects of AI are being constructed in the news.
