Conference Table 1 – Democracy and artificial intelligence: In the last decade, politically stable countries with a long-held and firm commitment to freedom of expression have witnessed their public debates plunge into an abyss.

At the center of the global revolution, shady strategies implemented by ultra-complex algorithms have learned how to exploit the fears and desires of crowds and individuals to engender fanaticism and irrationality. Politics has lost connection with the knowledge of factual truth, while obscurantist leaders strive to undermine fundamental rights, science, and human dignity.
