Enhancing the Quality of Life of Citizens 

A Smart City can optimize many functions and enhance the quality of the citizens’ life by applying advanced communication technologies such as 5G and Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Cities can improve traffic flow management to reduce jams, provide multimedia equipped public transportation to create a fluent journey, smart grids for optimized energy distribution, and proficient government functions for processing documents. Optimising energy consumption, lowering CO2, and creating a safer environment are just a few benefits. This tour will show the current and future technologies and strategies to convert our cities into Smart Cities.

Doctoring photos and videos used to take a lot of work. Now the advent of AI-generated imagery (using GAN technology) has made it disconcertingly easy for anyone to convincingly tweak images or videos or generate credible images of people who don’t exist. These AI ‘deepfakes’ have an alarming potential to sow discord and disinformation. Regulators must decide upon the most appropriate interventions and social media companies must act now to demonstrate that they are integrating deepfake countermeasures directly into their platforms. This thought-provoking session will highlight the dangerous and very real potential for deepfakes to be used to weaponize AI while also providing an understanding of the technologies and countermeasures that can be deployed to combat malicious use.

Attend this session to gain insight into the alarming potential of AI deepfakes to distort the truth and understand the countermeasures that can be deployed by social media companies.
