The Advisory Committee on Freedom of Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE), together with the Artificial Intelligence Special Interest Group are pleased to announce the International Seminar on Artificial Intelligence and Information Integrity under the theme:

Building Trust: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Information Integrity.

The hybrid seminar will take place on August 8, 2024, as part of the Mexican Information Global Forum MEXINFO in Mexico City from August 5–9, 2024, sponsored by the National Autonomous University of Mexico.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is driving a profound revolution in the information landscape. While AI holds immense potential for libraries in areas like information curation and user engagement, it also presents significant challenges, particularly regarding its threat to Information Integrity. The WEF Global Risks Report (2024) recently defined misinformation and disinformation as the most severe global risk over the next two years. Information integrity offers a constructive perspective on how to deal with the issues of deepfakes, hate speech, misinformation, and disinformation. This seminar seeks to explore the complex interplay between AI and information integrity, fostering an open dialogue on the potential benefits, challenges, and ethical considerations involved.
