Scientists Confronting the Disinformation Ecosystem

Guest: Sheldon Himelfarb

With the advances in AI and increasing sophistication in creating misleading content such as deepfakes, there is growing concern especially amongst academics and researchers about the threat mis- and dis-information pose not only for the 2024 election cycle and democracy, but also for pressing concerns such as public health and climate change. How can we address a polluted information ecosystem at a time of significant social divide and erosion of trust? How can scientific principles and approach inform policy?

Please join us for a conversation with Shelton Himelfarb, the co-founder and Executive Director of the International Panel on the Information Environment (IPIE)  an independent global organization of over 300 leading scientists dedicated to providing actionable scientific knowledge on threats to our information landscape.

Hosted by: Alexa Raad and Leslie Daigle.
