Content moderation greatly impacts how people communicate on social media. It also impacts the wellbeing of moderators. How can we improve?
About this Event
Content moderation is a hot issue in 2021, given that it greatly impacts the way people communicate on social media. What content should be allowed & what shouldn't? How open & transparent should platforms be about how they make these decisions? What about the wellbeing of moderators who are viewing disturbing content?
Join us on Thursday, January 21 at 1pm ET for a highly-interactive livestream with two leading experts on content moderation. Special guests Sarah T. Roberts, PhD (co-founder & Co-Director of the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry, author of Behind the Screen: Content Moderation in the Shadows of Social Media) & Murtaza Shaikh, PhD (Senior Advisor on Hate Speech, Social Media & Minorities to UN Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues). The conversation will be moderated by David Ryan Polgar, founder & director of All Tech Is Human.
