Registration is open for Fake News Horror Show!—June 7th and 8th in Downtown Brooklyn.
Misinformation and computational propaganda are already a problem. New technologies may make things exponentially worse. The Fake News Horror Show! will explore worst case scenarios.
New technologies are making it possible to generate new and more insidious forms of propaganda and misinformation. The only way to address the problem is to understand what is possible. On Thursday June 7th and Friday June 8th, the Fake News Horror Show! will convene researchers, digital media experts and technologists, and those concerned with the political and social implications of computational propaganda to imagine the worst. Picture a science fair of terrifying propaganda tools- some real and some imagined, but all based on plausible technologies.
