Mitigating Societal Harms in a Social Media World
Hosted by IEEE Computer Society Tech Forum
The IEEE Computer Society’s new Tech Forum on Mitigating Societal Harms in a Social Media World brings together policymakers and technologists to explore the intersection of current technical efforts and public policies and the resulting impacts to society. This event focuses on elemental contributors to societal harm that can be amplified by social media – Hate Speech, Terrorism/Radicalization/Exploitation, Misinformation, and Disinformation – by delivering insights from experts working in policy, technical standards, and cutting-edge solutions built on promising technologies such as AI and machine learning. Hear about the latest approaches to these critical problems; join Q&A sessions with the speakers; and participate in small group discussions on each topic.
