The topic of Artificial Intelligence has been a significant point of discussion worldwide. We have invited Professor Aleksandra Przegalińska, one of the leading voices in this field, to address our questions regarding the work of activists and CSOs and the impact of AI on civil society.

✅ In the first episode of our podcast interview series for NGOs, you can delve into the most common aspects of AI and get the answers to the following questions:

  • What is Artificial Intelligence? Is there one AI or are there many "AIs"?

  • Can AI support CSO/ NGO workers?

  • How can AI contribute to building communities, fostering trust, and strengthening social capital?

  • To what extent can the new, tech-generated forms of disinformation spread and affect the civil society members dedicating their efforts to counter disinformation?

  • What should we bear in mind when using AI consciously?

  • What skills are necessary to effectively use the AI-based tools? Do we require a new set of media literacy skills?

  • AI is often portrayed as a tool for amassing economic capital, but could it also be harnessed for social capital?
