Do Moderators Dream of Electric Sheep? The potential for AI in regulating online content

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Online platforms are increasingly facing calls from lawmakers and regulators to address harmful content of various types, and also frequently wish to moderate their own content for their own terms of use and policies. The scale of the content on many platforms makes some form of algorithmic function a necessary part of content moderation, and recently interest has grown in using AI technologies such as machine learning to play a part too. The goal of this session is to exchange views between expert panelists, and the public, on the potential for AI to be used in content moderation, while respecting fundamental rights.
