How Generative AI Will Impact Democracy

About this event

AI will transform our politics, from deep fakes and disinformation news sites to targeted advertising, which is just beginning to be understood. Hear from Dais Senior Fellow Sam Jeffers, founder of Who Targets Me and an expert on technology’s impact on democracy, about how generative AI will impact elections, and what governments, political parties, journalists, social media platforms and all of us can do to build our democratic resilience.

This event is open to all individuals with an interest in the intersection of technology and democracy, and is free of charge with advanced registration required.

We are committed to hosting an inclusive and accessible event for everyone. When registering, please mention if you require any accommodations.
