Leaders from major tech firms emphasized the importance of proactive measures to safeguard the integrity of electoral processes worldwide and protect democracy from AI misuse. During the conference, participating companies pledged to implement technology to swiftly identify and tackle fake AI content. This includes developing tools to detect and suppress the dissemination of audio, video, and images containing false information about candidates and voting procedures.

Furthermore, companies highlighted collaboration, transparency, and improving user literacy as crucial pillars in the fight against fake AI content. By fostering cross-industry cooperation and involving civil society groups, scholars, and governments, they are committed to building robust defenses against election manipulation.
