The rapid expansion of artificial intelligence (AI) and its impact in the society is a vital topic for how world democracies will be shaped in the years to come. In this respect, the Policy Dialogue will discuss the essential features shaping the future of AI and democracy by addressing crucial questions: what is the connection (if any) between artificial intelligence and democracy? Is artificial intelligence a challenge for democracy? How could we transform artificial intelligence as a useful and viable tool that enhances the creation of democratic structures around the globe?
The event will take place in the context of the Chair in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Democracy, established by the EUI School of Transnational Governance, the Spanish Secretary of State for Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence, and the Institute of Democratic Governance. The project aims at conducting research, transfer knowledge, dissemination, teaching and innovation activities on matters related to AI and democracy.
This Policy Dialogue will provide a platform for representatives from academia, policymakers, officials and members of civil society to openly exchange views concerning the priorities of the STG Chair in Artificial Intelligence and Democracy within a transnational context, and it follows the Policy Dialogue "The Democratic Challenges of Artificial Intelligence" hosted in June 2022 at the EUI.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only and all deliberations will take place under the Chatham House rule (no views or positions may be attributed publicly to any participant).
Following the recommendations that result from this discussion, a policy brief is planned to be published by the organisers as as part of their public mission.
