Artificial Intelligence-generated content has recently garnered significant attention due to its ability to create cheaply and at scale credible-looking artificial content, including texts, deep fake images, 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, being it 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 is organised by Horizon Europe policy and innovation, together with the TITAN project and other three running projects and focuses on all relevant issues and challenges around generative AI tackling disinformation.
- Francesco Saverio Nucci will moderate the Panel 3 on “The role of critical thinking in addressing Future AI tools to fight disinformation";
- Massimo Magaldi will intervene in the Panel 4 on “Technological and strategic approaches to detecting and countering AI-generated content”. He will speak about the TITAN project, which develops novel AI techniques to counter online disinformation, in light of the recent advances on generative AI.
