Next month, the Bennett Institute for Public Policy will host a dialogue on the integrity and future of democratic engagements as AI technologies proliferate and 68 countries head to the polls. The multidisciplinary panelists will discuss several key issues impacting elections around the globe, including deepfakes, public trust, and responsible innovation.

The event will host two expert discussions: ‘Crafting the future: navigating the intersection of AI regulation and electoral innovation’ and ‘Media integrity in the AI era: addressing deepfakes and misinformation.’ Our Executive Director Professor Gina Neff, alongside Tom Mason, former CTO at Stability AI, and Dr Ella McPherson, Associate Professor of the Sociology of New Media and Digital Technology at the Centre of Governance and Human Rights (CGHR), will join the former discussion to explore the challenges and opportunities posed by the rise of AI-generated media in the electoral process. She will discuss how policymakers and technologists can collaborate to develop strong regulations that encourage responsible AI innovation.

Prof Neff will also be joined by Kenneth Cukier, Deputy Executive Editor at The Economist, Dr Kerry McInerney, Research Associate at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, and Henry Ajder, Founder of Latent Space.
