Machine learning allows constant improvement of AI algorithms, which bring disinformation to a new level of precision and accuracy. AI-generated comments on social media, disinformation campaigns undermining democratic processes and institutions, smear campaigns running on deepfake videos – just a few of the challenges brought by AI technology today.
💡 How should governments and the international community respond to these challenges? How can we reverse the trend of AI being used for destructive purposes and make it the main tool to combat fake news and detect deepfakes?

The building foundation of every startup is an innovative idea of a business, product, or service, so it is natural that many founders focused mostly on the implementation and improvement of the idea. However, questions regarding a legal form and intellectual property of a startup are critical, as mistakes in these domains are extremely costly – they often determine investor decisions to invest in a startup.
Let’s discuss these topics on March 25th, at 3 p.m. during the online webinar Starting Your Own Business on the Right Foot: Startup Legal Forms & Intellectual Property together with:
- Vilija Viešūnaite – TRINITI JUREX Managing Partner in Lithuania, Head of Intellectual Property Practice Group and a certified IP SCAN expert;
- Giedre Čiuladiene – TRINITI JUREX Associate Partner, Head of Corporate and Transactions Practice Group;
- Rita Sakus – the founder and board member of the Lithuanian Business Angels Network (LitBAN).
Here’s some amazing news from ISM! They have developed a new bachelor’s programme, titled “Digital Business and Innovation”. For those who are ready to step out of their comfort zone and who are not afraid to experiment. For those who want to challenge themselves. For those who dream of creating a startup or building a successful career in a technology company.
This programme combines creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation. It is based on the principle of “learning by doing” – practice, experimentation, and job shadowing opportunities. Teachers, practitioners, mentors, and founders of well-known startups will pass on their knowledge and expertise to you. And your studies will be crowned by a presentation of your own business project to the business community. Therefore, we can boldly say that those who want to change the world and build a global business will find their place in this programme.
