Artificial intelligence and disinformation
Detecting and counteracting propaganda spread by means of new technologies
About the project
Over the past 2 years of full-scale invasion, social media and the internet have become an even greater source of disinformation. In addition, today's new technologies are increasingly facilitating the creation of propaganda. For example, one of the most popular services with millions of users, ChatGPT (which produces various types of content in just a few seconds, from articles and TV scripts to marketing strategies and even software code) often generates false information by distorting historical facts and creating non-existent news and events.
Unfortunately, many journalists, bloggers, and public figures often use artificial intelligence services to create and distribute content related to the war and the situation in the country in general without appropriate fact-checking, and as a result, spread even more disinformation and propaganda.
Understanding the urgency of solving this problem, the team of the Institute of Innovative Governance, with the financial support of the UK Government and together with partners, launched the project "AI Awareness: A Guide for Content Creators to Identify and Combat Russian Propaganda in Emerging Technologies", which aims to teach content creators, journalists and social media users how to recognise and counter propaganda created by artificial intelligence technologies.
Our project aims to address this growing problem by providing content creators, journalists and social media users with the knowledge and tools to recognise and counter propaganda generated by artificial intelligence. The initiative focuses on raising awareness and understanding of how artificial intelligence can be used to spread disinformation. Through this project, we aim to create a more informed and responsible digital community that can critically evaluate and challenge the credibility of AI-generated content.
