Truth, Lies & Propaganda: How Disinformation Will Infect the 2020 Elections Online
This election cycle, voters face an onslaught of campaign information, much of it disinformation. Campaigns, governments, and others are using both familiar and emerging technologies—from social media and bots to artificial intelligence and algorithms—to polarize voters, spread false narratives, sow confusion, and drown out the truth. Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson speaks with The Atlantic's McKay Coppins, AI For the People founding CEO Mutale Nkonde, and University of Texas at Austin School of Journalism assistant professor Samuel Woolley about how the 2020 election will be impacted by information warfare.
