Many policymakers are concerned about attempts by some actors, particularly Russia, to covertly use online platforms to insert propaganda and incendiary messages into public discourse in European democracies by targeting particular groups with disinformation campaigns. One powerful tool in the fight against fake news is artificial intelligence (AI), which can be used to automatically detect and respond to this content as well as empower users with the ability to verify the veracity of claims. How can policymakers, journalists, and academics work with the private sector to accelerate the use of AI to counter fake news, without introducing new distortions to public discourse or stifling freedom of speech?
