April 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CEST

How can we work together to build, achieve and sustain trustworthy and accountable information sharing ecosystems in the AI era? Can we use AI and other technological and organizational capabilities to get rid of fake news and other misinformation? How can we ensure AI deployments are used for good? How can we increase trust in modern information sharing ecosystems?
