Artificial Intelligence and Democracy is the title of the article that features in the new release of the magazine of the Hellenic Parliament investigating the role of AI and its consequences in democratic processes within Parliamentary operations.

Institute collaborating researchers Dr. George Giannakopoulos, Dr. Xenia Ziοuvelou, and Mr. Vassilis Giannakopoulos shared their valuable input regarding artificial intelligence, the opportunities and risks that arise with its use, as well as the beneficial ways to utilize it for Parliamentary services.

Dr. G. Giannakopoulos in his article “Democracy & Artificial Intelligence: Opportunities and Dangers” states that The significant opportunity that arises from a substantial relationship between democracy and technology is precisely the processes of selecting the points of application and harnessing the capabilities of technology. Our society is collectively – and democratically – called upon to decide which uses of technology it accepts and which it does not. Furthermore, it is called upon to indicate which directions of study and experimentation it wishes to incentivize and which it does not. The one-way street of technological progress is not a one-way street at all.

In an additional article titled Using the power of artificial intelligence in parliaments: A journey towards a better future, within the same magazine, Dr. Ziοuvelou, Dr. G. Giannakopoulos, and Dr. V. Giannakopoulos mention that “By utilising the power of artificial intelligence, parliaments embark on a transformative journey that promises to redefine governance as we know it. As the use of artificial intelligence matures, so does our societal understanding, design, and tendency towards a responsible and reliable implementation”.
