Bass Connections Faculty Team Leader. Data and Technology for Fact-checking. 2018 - 2019
Primary Theme: Information, Society & Culture
Today, our society is struggling with an unprecedented amount of falsehoods, hyperboles and half-truths that do harm to democracy, health, economy and national security. Fact-checking is a vital tool for defending against this onslaught. Despite the rise of fact-checking efforts globally, fact-checkers find themselves increasingly overwhelmed and find it difficult to reach some segments of the public with their messages.
