21 June 2023, 13:00 - 14:00 Amsterdam time, Tolhuistuin
The session ‘Taking the Discussion on Bad Bots further’ includes a quick recap of the previous session focussing on topics like Misuse of Social Bots and Ethics of Influencing Discourse. During this session we will introduce briefly the topic of gaining trust in ai-assisted search and discovery and have 2 discussions. The first discussion is based on a demo of a student prototype nlp/ner search for OBA. The second discussion is based on a demo of chatgpt with playbook for non verified data.
We will also share some learnings about the ongoing project between Digital Rights House, OBA and iYYU Infra.

The use of chatbots is becoming more and more unavoidable and convenience is increasing, there is a large gap between what is expected of a digital citizen in terms of presumed knowledge and ability, and what, in many cases, their actual self-sufficiency is. The dialogue on the use of (chat) bots needs to grow. There is a convenience / privacy discussion. Are we in control of the data we share with or via bots? Is it transparent how the bot works, how it is developed and what it does with the data we share? Join representatives from Digital Rights House, OBA and iYYU Infra during MozFest!
