AI Revolution: Information as Infrastructure with Doowan Lee

Episode 285

By the day it is becoming increasingly difficult to decipher AI content from human generated content. With the power to shape narratives across the globe, are these AI models and the content generated from them an immediate threat to our media ecosystem? This week host Elisa is joined by technologist and national security expert Doowan Lee. Together they explore the fundamental principles of generative AI, its potential for large-scale influence, and the potential setback posed by content monetization relying on user information.

Doowan Lee is a technologist and national security expert with experience in publicly funded analytic projects on large-data sources related to foreign and extremist information operations. He has also founded two tech startups focused on scaling open-source solutions to combat foreign malign influence.
