UPCOMING EVENT

Yale Information Society Project’s Propaganda and Emerging Technologies Conference

5 Apr. 8:00 AM EDT

EPIC Senior Counsel and Global Privacy Counsel Calli Schroeder, EPIC Senior Counsel Ben Winters, and Equal Justice Works Fellow Grant Fergusson will be participating in Yale Information Society Project’s Propaganda and Emerging Technologies Conference on April 5th – 6th, 2024.

Event Description: Problems of propaganda, hate speech, misinformation, manipulation, and electoral influence have persisted for years. These problems will likely increase as generative AI and extended reality technologies become more sophisticated and accessible. Because the problems are global as well as domestic, the solutions require a global as well as a domestic perspective. This international and interdisciplinary conference aims to explore how generative AI, extended reality, and other emerging technologies create new problems for the public sphere, and the best ways to deal with these problems. The goal of the conference is to help lawyers, policy makers and social media companies anticipate and plan for a new wave of propaganda in the age of artificial intelligence.
