NAMFREL & UA&P host RTD on AI use in elections


On June 26, the National Citizens' Movement for Free Elections (NAMFREL), along with the UA&P School of Social Sciences, Law, and Governance, held a roundtable discussion on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in elections.

The discussion sought to gather from the participants their inputs and comments that would lead to the drafting of a Code of Conduct on the Use of Artificial Intelligence in Philippine Elections and Election-Related Activities. The draft will then be submitted to the Commission on Elections for consideration.

Various stakeholders from civil society organizations, academe, media, and the information technology and cybersecurity sectors participated and shared their insights.

The event is supported by the Philippine Computer Emergency Response Team (PHCERT) and the National Association of Data Protection Officers of the Philippines (NADPOP).
