Zoom Room 6A

AI is quickly becoming an integral part of lives, and for many is a useful tool for advancing access to information and facilitating the use and enjoyment of online spaces. But for others, AI provides yet another way in which misogyny, harassment and discrimination can be advanced. This session seeks to unpack the ways in which AI can be a threat, an ally or a solution in the fight against gender-based violence. During this discussion, we will debate the different ways in which AI can impede or strengthen responses to gender-based violence both on- and offline. We will engage participants on questions relating to emerging threats, such as deep fakes, as well as discuss innovative ways in which we are seeing AI support victims and survivors. Ultimately, we will work towards developing our understanding of how AI can be part of the solution.
