About the event

Lithuania has fought off disinformation and propaganda for years now. The cooperation of our state, society, academia, and media in resisting these threats is often considered exemplary by NATO allies.

However, technological progress provides new opportunities for hostile states. A study conducted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) in January showed that more than half (53 percent) of global leaders identify artificial intelligence-assisted media and social media disinformation campaigns as one of the greatest threats to the world. It is emphasized that as early as 2024, elections worldwide could face the first attempts to use AI technologies to incite public unrest.

Lithuania's Ministry of Economy and Innovation, VU TSPMI, and data analysis company Repsense are organizing the "Defense League," the world's first anti-disinformation AI training exercises. During the event, experts will discuss the use of artificial intelligence for national security, while 40 students will compete to solve challenges related to the information security situation in Lithuania and the region.

Event partners: Ministry of Economy and Innovation of the Republic of Lithuania and Innovation agency.

Event organizers: Data analysis company Repsense, VU Institute of International Relations and Political Science (VU TSPMI), and VC fund CoInvest Capital.
