Talk

Computational Propaganda - How Algorithms Influence our Decisions

“Manipulations in the era of algorithms”. Facebook having 2.2 Monthly Active Users, together with Google and Twitter create three interconnected digital republics where majority of human interactions take place and where increasing amounts of people spend great amount of time daily. Such constellation created fantastic environment for development and usage of targeted ad industry. The same algorithms however have recently gained momentum in being used by bad actors in creation of the so called computational propaganda – custom made messaging aimed at exploiting the micro-vulnerabilities of human mind in order to influence the public discourse and feed people’s decisions. The talk will discuss the casus of Cambridge Analytica, Brexit and the use of bots for influencing people’s decisions.”
