Nutrition Labeling for Credible Content

Nutrition Labeling for Credible Content
Recording: Nutrition Labeling for Credible Content, Mar 13, 2019


Is quality information like quality nutrition? Can we map the building blocks of useful information online without further censorship? Is building a nutrition label for credible content a feasible concept for the future? And more broadly, can we agree on scientific and systematic ways to assess the credibility of information and whether they can be applied at scale? The Credibility Coalition, an interdisciplinary community committed to improving our information ecosystems and media literacy, explores these questions through collaboratively-structured definitions and shared results from tests for content credibility. CredCo leads will discuss all of this as well as the methodology behind the initiative's work and its innovative and unique approach to combating misinformation.
