A special session dubbed “GMA Masterclass Series: In the Age of AI” was also organized by GMA Integrated News, GMA Regional TV, and Synergy last September 30, gathering the Network’s multimedia journalists for a discourse on the importance and impact of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)

The GMA Masterclass Series is a significant endeavor for the academic community, spearheaded by GMA Regional TV and Synergy.   Launched in 2018, it strives to offer students and professors an additional platform for exploring and discussing a range of local and national topics.  It was recognized as the “The Most Development Oriented TV Plug'' at the Gandingan 2020: The 14th UPLB Isko’t Iska Multi-media Awards and took home the second Excellence Award under the Communication Training and Education Category at the 18th Philippine Quill Awards.
