Responsible AI for social media governance

This project is envisioned to respond to growing concerns about the misuse of social media platforms, which can be harmful and serve to propagate disinformation, extremism, violence, harassment and abuse. The aim of the project is to identify a set of technical and democratic methods that governments could adopt to safely ask a set of agreed questions and measurements about the effects of social media recommender systems. The project dovetails with ongoing work in the Christchurch Call and the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, which bring together governments, tech companies and citizens’ groups with the aim of eliminating terrorist and violent extremist content online.
