Ongoing technological revolution in artificial intelligence brings unprecedented challenges, disrupting some of the fundamental ideas of democracy. Large-scale manipulation for political purposes, for instance, can be achieved by applications relying on AI for targeted misinformation campaigns which leverage the concentration of powerful digital platforms and echo chambers. With regulation struggling to keep up with the pace of technological development, confidence in democratic authorities and processes is being challenged.
This session will discuss how AI can be used to strengthen our democracies rather than weaken them, how AI can be used to rethink our democratic processes and how AI could enable new forms of participation in democracy.
It also discusses what advantages Japan, France and Germany could derive from collaboration in this field and how such collaboration could be improved in the future.
