International Workshop: “AI & Political Conflict”

May 30 @ 09:00 - May 31 @ 17:00

The Boston-Bergen Forum on Digital Futures invites to a two-day hybrid event, bringing together prominent scholars to discuss the impact of AI-based platforms and their underlying technological, normative, and economic principles, on political discourse, deep disagreement, and conflict.

We are happy to invite to our second international workshop “AI & Political Conflict”, a two-day, hybrid event scheduled for 30th May (Thursday) and 31st May (Friday) 2024, from 9:00 to 17:00 (CET), and taking place at MediaFutures Research Centre as well as the Philosophy Department at UiB.

Our goal is to bring together prominent scholars from different disciplines to discuss the impact of AI-based platforms, and their underlying technological, normative, and economic principles, on political discourse, deep disagreement, and conflict.

The event will draw on the Boston-Bergen Forum on Digital Futures—an international research network among the ‘Culture, Society & Politics’ and the ‘Practical Philosophy’ research groups at UiB’s Philosophy Department, SFI MediaFutures Research Centre Bergen, the Applied Ethics Center at UMass Boston, and the MIT Program Human Rights and Technology.
