Each day will be divided into a morning and afternoon session.

In the morning, you will explore and test different tools using artificial intelligence. You will try your hand at generating text, images, sounds, videos and explore how AI creations can trick us. You will explore how AI can influence us, how to counteract this influence or how to use it to your advantage. Each day, the lecturers will open up one specific topic, introduce a new gadget, technology or way of thinking.

In the afternoon, you will work on team projects that connect AI with the world of (dis)information. The goal will be to develop a gadget, chatbot or other AI tool that will contribute to the cultivation of the information environment on the Internet. It could be a chatbot that helps to identify misinformation, an environment and tutorial on how to try to create a deepfake, an online course that introduces a specific way of working with AI... There is no limit to imagination.

You will work on projects using the Design Sprint method - each day you will complete one of its five project phases: understanding the goal, designing a solution, making a decision, prototype, testing. At the end, you should have a working prototype of the solution to the problem we have defined. We'll share our projects with each other in teams and give feedback on them, then on the last day we'll present where we've come.
