Profs and Pints: “Bots, Trolls, and Fake News.”

November 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0


Profs and Pints presents: “Bots, Trolls, and Fake News,” with Alan Rosenblatt, professor of political science at Johns Hopkins, George Washington, and American Universities and pioneer in the use of digital media for public affairs.

Social media, once looked upon as a potential savior of democracy, has instead been infiltrated by bots and trolls that spread fake news, distort elections, and undermine meaningful debate. Alan Rosenblatt, a thought leader on social media and director of digital research for Lake Research Partners, will answer questions such as: How bad is the problem? What are the tell-tale signs of a bot? How are trolls coordinating their activities? What is fake news? How can democracy survive this onslaught?
