Subject: AI and disinformation
FYI, in case of interest for you and/or your stakeholders and partners.
DG CNECT is organising a hybrid cluster meeting on AI and disinformation covering
generative AI and ChatGPT.
Meet the Future of AI: Countering Sophisticated & Advanced Disinformation
29 June 2023 | 09:00 - 17:30 CET | VRT, Karabiniersplein, Auguste Reyerslaan 52 B, 1043
Artificial Intelligence-generated content (Generative AI, for example, ChatGPT, DALL.E, or
Midjourney) has garnered significant attention recently due to its ability to create
cheaply and at scale credible-looking artificial content, including text, deep fake images
and videos, art, and music. Generative AI systems are capable of creating highly
convincing content at low cost, which could then be harnessed by bad actors in online
disinformation and abuse, and is difficult to detect.
Another drawback of generative AI is that the models are trained on datasets that have
been found to reflect implicit societal biases on issues such as gender and race. On the
positive side, generative AI models also provide opportunities for countering online abuse
and disinformation, by becoming useful companions to media professionals, engaged
citizens, and debunkers.
This event focuses on all relevant issues and challenges around generative AI and tackling
disinformation. We cordially invite you to join this policy & innovation conference
co-organised by the new Horizon Europe projects vera.ai, AI4TRUST, and TITAN and H2020
project AI4Media, which develop novel AI techniques to counter online disinformation, in
particular in light of the recent advances on generative AI.
