Presentations

Online nonsense: tools and teaching to combat fake news on the Web

M. Lesk, J. Golbeck, C. Triggs, N. Wacholder, C. Yu

How can we raise the quality of what we find on the Web? What software might we build, what education might we try to provide, and what procedures (either manual or mechanical) might be introduced? What are the technical and legal issues that limit our responses? The speakers will suggest responses to problems, and we’ll ask the audience what they would do in specific circumstances.
