Freedoms of expression and information in a digitalised democracy

The use of the internet, social networks and artificial intelligence tools of the digital age can abuse, even endanger, certain elements of our democratic rule of law. Different digital tools provided by technology, including artificial intelligence, have given citizens an unlimited and unfiltered communication mechanism. However, these tools have also become a powerful ally of authoritarian states and extremist ideological currents, which have found in this technological toolkit a subtle, almost invisible and therefore barely accountable way of influencing and manipulating the view of their citizens. If artificial intelligence determines what information is displayed and consumed, which issues are suppressed from the online information flood and which are amplified virally, this also carries risks of bias and unequal representation of opinions and voices. How to fight against these information disorders without losing the advantages of digitalisation and AI? This is the question.
