April's Policy Jam will reveal the results of our latest BCS members survey into the likely impact of Deepfakes on the General Election later this year.

How can voters tell what’s genuine in an era of AI-generated content, impressive looking - but biased - 'news' websites and social media bots? How concerned are IT professionals and what solutions to do they support?

There's also growing mistrust of mainstream media. So, how do political parties navigate this?

Join us to find out more at midday on Wednesday April 24, more details coming soon of our exciting panel!
