I don't think that News industry is depending on AI , as NEWS is the medium not of artificial intelligence. There is in-depth analysis for good and bad and treatment of the story in any perspective that AI cannot do as on now. I don't agree with Mr. Rohit & Mr. Pradeep

Even when I am not extremely familiar with the news and entertainment industry, I can think of the following use-cases:
1.) News or event selection and sequence: There are already applications of AI for example in the selection and location of stores within an airport to provide a mixture of offers maximizing the probability that passengers are buying something. Similar the selection and sequence of news or of entertainment events providing a mixture hat maximizes the interest might be an option.
2.) "Rewriting" of articles according to the consumer's educational level. Depending on the educational level / formerly read articles, a user-centered writing (or re-writing) of articles to taylor the content and wording to the reader's preferences might be already feasible with AI.

AI is and should always be a tool. As Sam Altman (CEO OpenAI) just said recently AGI is when we have a augmentation to our cognitive capacity but it’s there to help not hinder. It does one machine based / mechanical / digital thing very well but cannot develop strategies across boundaries, care or have empathy towards a situation. When it achieves “super intelligence” as Altman states, that is the time to worry and who knows how far that is away. Hence our need to take the emerging risks of AI very seriously, understand them and mitigate them but also always expect the unexpected with AI and ensure your organization is prepared for that next crisis as if it’s a whole of society impact just like we had with COVID yet AI has a potential impact scale 1000 times greater, now is the time to consider that risk and prepare and not 1 second after it happens as by then it will be too late.

Generative AI will have huge impact on the entertainment industry . This will help in creating content which can be used for specific purposes.

For news, AI can be used a bit differently. News industry can use AI for presentation the content and not for creation. Adapting the content based on the user, geo locations etc ( adult content auto filtration, statutory warning display etc ) and also in defining news spaces in both print and multimedia sectors.

Yes, Companies have developed AI products which allow to generate video and audio from text scripts. Earlier issue was with adding emotions and bots were not able to identify weather smile or look sad while reading sad news. with more models and tools maturing sentiment analysis can be improved.

In data collection, AI can be a big help but, even then, some kind of control and monitoring needs to be set in place. We all know that with every major breakthrough in technology, there is also a big leap in hacking tools.
We can probably rely on AI for aggregating information from multiple sources and presenting them in some sort of report or presentation, but I would not just trust it blindingly.
Sorry, but I'm an old soul that fears the "rise of the machine".

Yes - but like any other tool, it needs to be used carefully.  My philosophy is that a tool is not a crutch; it should be used for leveraging and not leaning; and it is only as good as the hand that wields it.  That being said, with AI, it is best to let the machine do what it does best (rapid execution of complex instructions the same way every time) so that it can free the human what the human does best (value judgments with more nuanced alternatives and intuitive outcomes).  To the extent that we can keep that balance and compartmentalization is the extent that we will be successful in our continued improvement and deployment of AI as a tool, whether we're talking about News or any other industry.
