It is an honorable concern of the DRPR to provide PR professionals with binding rules for dealing with AI. And he is not alone in this. Many national governments, the EU and international organizations are discussing or already regulating how artificial intelligence should be put on a leash.
Success Factor CommTech: The Digital Transformation of Corporate Communications
June 13, 2023
With the publication of our book “Success Factor CommTech: The Digital Transformation of Corporate Communications,” we have reached an important milestone in the work of the CommTech WG. With this book, the editors and authors hope to provide practical advice to help all those involved in the digitization of communication and who want to adapt to the disruptive effect of CommTech in their work along their path. We have only been able to experience how quickly digitization is progressing in the last few months “live and in color” with the introduction of ChatGPT – and this is by no means the end. In the CommTech WG, we have therefore made it our task to accompany these developments for communications practice and are continuously producing materials, further training opportunities and exchange platforms to promote successful change. We hope that this book will help to encourage all communicators on this path and provide them with the tools they need to successfully manage change.
