AI4Media Workshop on “Human- and Society-centred AI”
AI4Media is organising an AI4Media Workshop on “Human- and Society-centred AI” that will take place on Friday, June 25th, 2021 from 08:55 to 13:30 CEST.
The goal of this workshop is to present the recent research advances achieved in the AI4Media project on human- and society-centred AI. The workshop includes presentations from AI4Media partners and two invited speakers. AI4Media partners’ contributions focus on:
1 | detection of deepfakes in multimedia content,
2 | the dynamics of social media conversations,
3 | the automatic analysis of political discourse,
4 | the fusion of different signals for user behaviour characterization,
5 | the human-centered analysis of news consumption, and
6 |the real-life effects of data sharing.
The detailed programme is available HERE.
The two invited presentations will tackle two complementary topics.
Dr Elena Kochkina from the Queen Mary University of London will present a review of existing methods and challenges related to automated rumour verification.
Dr Oana Goga from CNRS will discuss the very timely topic of political ads served on social networks. Taken together, these contributions allow a better understanding of the relation between AI and different aspects of news distribution and consumption. Ultimately, the objective is to contribute to the design of a healthier public debate, with particular focus on societally impactful topics such as health and politics.
