Ch. 4 The Future Of Truth

Fri Feb 1 7 PM until 7 PM , The Embassy, 399 Webster St.

Organized by Lou de Kerhuelvez

In 2016, Oxford Dictionaries declared “post-truth” word of the year, meaning “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”

In the digital age, how does the Future look like for truth? Will the quality and veracity of information online deteriorate due to the spread of unreliable, sometimes even dangerous, socially destabilizing ideas?

If yes, what can we do to encourage the emergence of trusted methods to block false narratives and allow the most accurate information to prevail in the overall information ecosystem?

Topics to be discussed:
- Fake news and the erosion of truth
- AI enabled audio and video manipulation
- Shortening attention spans
- Algorithmic Echo Chambers
- Tribal instincts and Polarization of Politics

No spectator - everyone is a speaker.
