Applications are open for the Pulitzer Center AI Accountability Fellowship 2022. The Al Accountability Fellowships seek to support staff and freelance journalists working on in-depth AI accountability stories that examine governments’ and corporations’ uses of predictive and surveillance technologies to guide decisions in policing, medicine, social welfare, the criminal justice system, hiring, and more.
The eight-months-long Fellowship will provide journalists up to $20,000 to pursue their reporting project. The funds can be used to pay for records requests, travel expenses, data analysis, and stipends. In addition, the Fellows will have access to mentors and relevant training with a group of peers that will help strengthen their reporting projects.
Journalists need to apply with a reporting project they wish to pursue during their Fellowship. They encourage enterprise and accountability projects that use a variety of approaches—from data analysis, to records requests, and shoe-leather reporting—and delve into the real-world impact of algorithms on policy, individuals, and communities.
While each Fellow will work on an individual reporting project, the Fellowship involves periodic discussions and trainings with the other Fellows. One of the key benefits of the Fellowship is the possibility to access a learning community of journalists facing similar reporting challenges as they pioneer the algorithmic accountability reporting field.
