About the Talk

Artificial intelligence (AI) brings great changes for media and information intermediaries. While discussions initially revolved around whether rules are needed for how algorithms select and present content due to its influence on the formation of public opinion, generative AI is now leading to an increased focus on the content-related dimension of AI. Generative AI creates content itself and uses information available on the web to do so. From a legal point of view, a number of new questions arise, especially for information intermediaries who, through the use of generative AI tools, move away from their role as intermediaries and become content providers themselves. The lunch talk will present and discuss possible solutions to at least some of these questions. The topic "AI and Media and Information Intermediaries" is part of a larger research project of the Center for Information Technology, Society, and Law (ITSL) at the University of Zurich, which focuses on the development of a legal framework for AI in Switzerland.
