Digital Transformations Platform
Free of charge
The problem of Fake News and other problematic online content is one of our time’s most pressing challenges -- it is widely believed to have played a major role in the election of Trump and Brexit, and in general threatens the healthy functioning of news media in modern democracy. In this seminar, The Platform for Digital Transformation brings together practitioners and academic scholars from various disciplines, including information systems, economics, and computational linguistics, to better understand the phenomenon, and to develop research strategies to address it.
