Exploring Generative AI’s Threat to Social Justice and Democracy
Dimitri aka d4e5
Large Language Models (LLMs) are significantly transforming the way we work. Within cybersecurity, professionals and researchers have identified an arms race: LLM-based tactics for both offense and defense trying to outpace each other. Companies mainly worry about their Intellectual Property being used to train these models. But,
personal data is increasingly used to train data sets, and privacy authorities are starting - or should definitely start - to worry about this. Yet how LLMs may harm impact individuals, social justice and society at large remains poorly understood. In this talk, Maria and Dimitri explore some of the current and emerging threats of generative AI to societies and social justice, as well as some of the possible solutions and countermeasures.
