Achieving more transparency in EU policymaking - The potential of AI
Building bridges between citizens, organisations, EU institutions and European governments remains a fundamental challenge towards making European policymaking accessible and transparent for all citizens across Europe.
As stated in Article 10 of the Treaty on European Union, ‘open decision-making is carried out as closely as possible to the citizens’. Access to public information, also known as the ‘right to know’, is vital for a functioning democracy.
With the rise of disinformation these past years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is seen as a prominent tool that could help strengthen democracies, if properly implemented and regulated. By using data-based scrutiny, AI could help achieve more transparency in the EU, preventing disinformation as well as ensuring better access to quality information for citizens.
AI is increasingly being used in the media sector as an essential tool to improve the quality of its content and provide more accurate information to its audiences. Many believe that AI has big potential to shape the future of European media.
Join this EURACTIV Hybrid Conference to discuss how AI can contribute to achieving more transparency in the EU policymaking process. Questions to be addressed include:
- Which tools can be used to help citizens access quality, trust-worthy information?
- How can EU policy stakeholders encourage national and international media to inform citizens about EU policies?
- What are the opportunities offered by AI to achieve these goals?
