30 May, 14:30 – 15:30 CEST

In this webinar, Sophie Murphy Byrne will address the risks that artificial intelligence technologies pose in terms of electoral disinformation, looking at recent electoral events (e.g. India or South Korea will hold elections days before the webinar and Mexico and the European Union shortly after). Risks will be addressed in a broad sense, not only in terms of content creation or manipulation but also the use of AI to exacerbate existing risks, to distribute content or to profile voters more accurately. Solutions or policy issues will also be mentioned.

This webinar contributes to raising the #DemocraticShield to safeguarding the 2024 European elections
