Centre interdisciplinaire sur les enjeux stratégiques (CIENS)

Seminar on misinformation in the age of Artificial Intelligence

The rapid development of generative AI promises a revolution in our relationship to news information, the structuring of political debate and decision-making. How can we understand their impact on our national and international political systems?

This political sociology seminar bridges the gap between research and the worlds of expertise. It aims to provide a scientific perspective on the problems faced by experts in “informational warfare” at a time when political competition is being digitized and generative AI is becoming more widespread.

Our speakers will explore the practices and phenomena associated with “disinformation” and “informational warfare”, using the tools of political science and political sociology.

Here’s the program:
