KEY TAKEAWAYS


The use of AI in media, social media content creation, and journalism in Kenya will have both positive and negative consequences.

On the positive side, AI-powered tools will enable organizations to produce high-quality content faster and more efficiently.

This will enable them to deliver personalized content to their audiences, resulting in increased engagement and better ROI.


As we look toward the future of African media, I am reminded of two key African proverbs that speak to the concept of change. The first proverb is “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” This proverb speaks to the idea that change cannot be accomplished alone. It requires collaboration, teamwork, and a shared vision for the future.

The second proverb is “It takes a village to raise a child.” This proverb speaks to the idea that change requires the involvement and support of the entire community. It is not enough for a few individuals to initiate change. It requires the participation and buy-in of the entire community to ensure its success.

As we look toward the future of African media, we must remember these proverbs. The impact of artificial intelligence on the media industry is significant and cannot be ignored. AI-powered tools can improve efficiency, productivity, and accuracy, resulting in better content and increased audience engagement.

However, we must also consider the potential negative consequences of AI in the media industry. The use of AI-powered tools could lead to job loss and further widen the gap between those who have access to technology and those who do not. As we embrace the potential of AI in the media industry, we must also ensure that its use is ethical and responsible. We must work together as a community to create regulations and guidelines that ensure the technology is used for the benefit of all.

Furthermore, we must ensure that the use of AI in the media industry does not compromise the integrity of journalism and the media industry as a whole. Journalists have an important role to play in society,
