The Impact of AI on the Internet


In the rapidly evolving landscape of digital governance, the intersection of Internet governance and Artificial Intelligence (AI) remains an overlooked and critical aspect. We ought to contextualize the impact of AI on Internet operations in a more holistic manner. The questions we should address include: AI and Internet connectivity, AI and its potential impact on the use and abuse of Internet infrastructure, AI and access to Internet services, AI and censorship on the Internet, AI and web governance, to name a few. In this session, I will talk about the impact of AI on the Internet and Internet governance and make a few examples of how Internet operations are streamlined or impacted by AI and how to monitor this issue in different policy fora.
