Live | AI, media and democracy: how to square the circle?


Paul Nemitz, lawyer and EU advisor on digital freedoms

Published on 8 November 2023 at 14:15

Will artificial intelligence replace journalists? Does it endanger democracy? How can AI be regulated without curbing the innovations it might bring for the good of all? We talk to Paul Nemitz, senior advisor to the European Commission's Directorate-General for Justice and professor of law at the College of Europe.

Paul is considered one of Europe's most respected experts on digital freedom. He led the work on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and is the author, with Matthias Pfeffer, of "The Human Imperative – Power, Democracy and Freedom in the Age of Artificial Intelligence", an essay on the impact of new technologies on individual liberties and society.

An event moderated by Catherine André and Gian-Paolo Accardo, in English.
