With the start of 2024, we have embarked on a pivotal elections’ cycle, and the growing threat of artificial intelligence plagues our civic participation. By definition, generative artificial intelligence (GAI) focuses on creating new and original content, synthetic data and even deep fakes, which are not always easy to distinguish.
GAI has the ability to impact our elections in a myriad of ways, including creating fake robocalls, deep fakes, and dis-and-mis-information that can run rampant with in-language voter materials. This threatens to color fair and objective information, which is necessary when making informed voting decisions about candidates running for any level of elected office.
Please join FCCP for a GAI fireside chat for funders on Monday, February 26, 2024 from 2-3:15pm ET and hear from practitioners in the media and technology sector discuss this issue of GAI and its impacts on elections. Alexandra Givens of the Center for Democracy and Technology will join Yosef Getachew of Reset Tech in a conversation moderated by David Toomey of the Center for Civil Rights and Technology at The Leadership Conference Education Fund. They will discuss what GAI is, how it impacts elections, and what philanthropy can do to help protect vulnerable, electorate communities in its expansion.
Register here for this funders and philanthropy-serving organizations (PSOs) discussion; bring your questions, as there will be time carved out for Q and A during this 75-minute virtual chat. With questions, please reach out to Anita Banerji, FCCP’s Senior Director, Strategy & External Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to your participation in this important, virtual fireside chat on February 26th!
As with all FCCP events, the subject matter is strictly limited to non-partisan discussion as outlined in the agenda.
