AI and Democracy – Threats, Promises, and Reality Checks

Hybrid Event

Malkin Penthouse, 4th Floor, Littauer Building, Harvard Kennedy School and Online

The Rajawali Foundation Institute for Asia invites you to join us for a hybrid conversation on the influence of artificial intelligence on democracy. This year, emerging AI tools, disinformation campaigns, and the pervasive embedding of technology in society pose risks to democratic elections across the globe. This panel will explore such dynamics in Taiwan’s recent election and the upcoming US election and offer ways of thinking about — and countering — such threats.

Speakers include:

  • Wu Min Hsuan, DoubleThink Lab
  • Bruce Schneier, Harvard Kennedy School
  • Elettra Bietti, Northeastern University
