White Paper on Generative AI and Disinformation: Recent Advances, Challenges, and Opportunities 

The EU co-funded projects TITAN, AI4Media, AI4Trust and vera.ai have joined forces: participants of the four Horizon Europe projects co-wrote a White Paper entitled "Generative AI and Disinformation: Recent Advances, Challenges, and Opportunities." It takes a look at past and present developments and raises issues for the future in this highly relevant field.

According to the authors, the goal of the publication is to ‘deepen the understanding of disinformation-generation capabilities of state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence, as well as the use of AI in the development of new disinformation detection technologies’. It includes pointing to associated ethical and legal challenges. Ultimately, challenges and opportunities brought about by generative AI in the context of disinformation production, spread, detection, and debunking are assessed and portrayed.

Work was led and coordinated by vera.ai's Scientific Director Prof. Kalina Bontcheva of the University of Sheffield.

The paper is accessible here (see below) and on the EDMO website.
