Event Description:

THE GOLDEN AGE OF DISINFORMATION: WILL IT DESTROY DEMOCRACY?

Tuesday, April 18, 6.30 – 7.45 pm

In 2017, the world enters a new age of international relations in which standards of diplomacy and protocol will be discarded. Widely accepted norms are being rejected, and facts are considered subjective. News is suspect, intelligence is rebuffed, and our political systems are now fair game for adversarial manipulation. Technology and capitalism have created a perfect storm: the golden age of disinformation. How has global media convergence contributed to the current climate? Has the Internet been a net positive or negative so far for democracy? What hazards does such disinformation pose for the advancement of our understanding, especially as a leading nation in science and technology? Can measures, technical or otherwise, be taken to mitigate the effects of disinformation? Join CGA Futures Lab founder and Good Judgment Project Superforecaster Regina Joseph for a conversation on these and other implications of the emergence of disinformation.
