AI’s Impact on the 2024 Global Elections

With billions heading to the polls this year, the stakes for global democracies are substantial. Generative AI advances and broad accessibility are already reshaping sectors with exponential growth expected to continue. How will these tools change the information ecosystem and how will governments, campaigns, and the public respond to new challenges?

Against this backdrop, the Institute of Global Politics at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs together with Aspen Digital, a program of the Aspen Institute, will gather political affairs experts, tech executives, leading academics, and public servants for an afternoon of discussions examining how AI has played a role in the elections that have occurred already in Taiwan, Argentina, and Slovakia and more and what that means for elections later in the year.

This event is co-hosted by the Institute of Global Politics (IGP) at Columbia SIPA and Aspen Digital, a program of the Aspen Institute.

Speakers include: 

  • Hillary Rodham Clinton, Professor of International and Public Affairs; Columbia University; 67th Secretary of State and former Senator from New York; IGP Faculty Advisory Board Chair
  • Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of Homeland Security
  • Yasmin Green, CEO, Jigsaw (Google)
  • Dara Lindenbaum, Commissioner, Federal Election Commission of the United States
  • Anna Makanju, Vice President of Global Affairs, OpenAI
  • Maria Ressa, Nobel Peace Prize-Winning Journalist; Cofounder, CEO, and President of Rappler; IGP Carnegie Distinguished Fellow
  • Ethan Tu, Founder, Taiwan AI Labs
