Trust, fake news & misinformation: what are the tech tools needed to win this battle?
Presented by: Tech, Media & Democracy

The fake news concerns span anything from deliberate misinformation to politicians & others undermining trust in news media. Can technology be harnessed to address these issues, & how? What tools are needed for journalists to better understand & respond to misinformation dissemination on different platforms? How to react to credibility attacks? What are the best ways to support trust/fact-checking? How to use technology to set truth-seeking organizations apart?

About Tech, Media & Democracy:Six of New York City's universities are partnering to defend & support journalism & independent news media --- one of the most critical elements of our democracy --- as they are increasingly under threat. This unique, first-of-its kind program & collaboration will bring together Cornell Tech, Columbia University, City University of New York, New York University, The New School & Pratt Institute -- in partnership with the NYC Media Lab -- to investigate & understand the various threats to journalism & media, & attempt to address these challenges using design, engineering, & computational methods & techniques. The effort will gather graduate students with backgrounds & expertise in journalism, design, & engineering/technology from these institutions in a special course to kick off in Spring 2018.In addition to the course, a speaker series hosted at news organizations around the city will launch in October around the themes of the partnership, featuring influential figures from media & technology. Inaugural media participants that will host fall programming include The New York Times, CNN, BuzzFeed, Dow Jones & the HuffPost.
