What ethical questions should be asked to ensure responsible implementation?
After a brief overview of the place of AI in the press, this guide addresses a series of questions designed to help information professionals think about the use of AI.
The main aim is to provide a number of ethical insights to help journalists and editors who wish to draw up a charter to govern the use of generative AI or, more broadly, artificial intelligence systems within newsrooms.
More broadly, this guide provides a starting point for an industry-wide conversation on digital ethics in the press.

After an OVERVIEW that explores the way in which existing charters are drafted, some of the points put forward by these texts are explored, in particular, the question of supervision, transparency, data protection, environmental issues, and the question of their durability and "hallucinations".

The second part, entitled IMAGINE A MODEL, looks at the scenarios in which solutions based on artificial intelligence systems could be developed or implemented in newsrooms.
QUESTIONS TO ASK brings together a set of questions for each type of audience (audience, editorial staff, support functions) to create a charter for the use of ethical and responsible artificial intelligence systems.
