In an era where technology is reshaping our societal landscape, understanding the implications of AI on democratic processes is paramount. Generative AI (GenAI), a subset of artificial intelligence that aims to create new content, poses both promises and perils for democratic processes around the world. 

This event focuses on relevant issues and challenges around generative AI for the public good and democracy. We cordially invite you to attend this half-day conference co-organised by the Horizon Europe projects vera-aiAI4TRUSTTITAN AI-CODE and the H2020 project AI4Media, which develop novel AI techniques to counter online disinformation, particularly in light of the recent advances in generative AI.

The final programme is available here

It consists of two main session strands running from 2.40-6.10 pm (with registration opening at 2.10 pm): 

Session 1: Generative AI in latest elections and other disinformation campaigns

From 18:00 - 19:00  there will be a reception to which every attendee is invited.
