Recording: Infocalypse: The Future of Misinformation & How We Stop It, Mar 13, 2018

What can we trust when “fake news” and AI-altered live video make it impossible to believe what we see? Detroit’s former Director of Innovation & Emerging Technology Garlin Gilchrist, now Executive Director of the University of Michigan School of Information Center for Social Media Responsibility, and chief technologist Aviv Ovadya discuss how threats to shared perceptions of reality, policy, and diplomacy must be addressed through concerted efforts that include conscientious platform design, investment in mitigation, and more robust tools for observation and understanding.
