AI, Media and Democracy
The AI, Media and Democracy Lab will work on today’s and tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities that AI and digital technology present for media and democracy, and combine this with cutting-edge research at the interface between social sciences, law, humanities and computer science.
The AI, Media & Democracy Lab focuses on how AI and digital technology are transforming media and democracy. The researchers will tackle specific issues surrounding the use of AI in the media, such as; ways in which we can develop more people-oriented and diverse systems, look into the possible roles of chatbots in news outlets and explore what the media of tomorrow should like. The lab will bring together fundamental and applied research in the fields of law, ethics, communication science, media studies and computer science.
Nanda Piersma, lecturer in Responsible IT at AUAS and CWI researcher:
“In this collaboration between AUAS, the UvA and the CWI both academic and applied subjects and approaches will go hand-in-hand. Together with our consortium partners, we will design and implement tools that are truly responsible.”
Their projects will be clustered around 4 themes:
Cluster 1: Blue Sky Thinking: the Media of the Future
Cluster 2: Public values & AI
Cluster 3: Reshaping the relationship with the audience
Cluster 4: Creating the legal, ethical and organizational conditions for AI in the media
