Facts in the Digital Age: Coping in an Era of Total Noise!

7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Lee Rainie, Director, Internet, Science and Technology Research, Pew Research Center Author of the book "Networked: The New Social Operating System"
Speaker TBD, The Washington Post, member of Santa Clara University’s Trust Project
Peter Raymond, Director, The New Bureau

Over the years, Pew Research has consistently indicated that Americans trust libraries and librarians. In today’s digital environment, high-quality journalism can be difficult to distinguish from promotional content or even fakery. Santa Clara University’s Trust Project explores how journalism can stand out from the chaotic crowd and signal its trustworthiness. The project crafts tangible digital strategies to fulfill journalism’s basic pledge: to serve society with a truthful, intelligent and comprehensive account of ideas and events. New technology, particularly artificial intelligence, is also making it difficult to determine facts and cope in this era of total noise. Our speakers address these areas and definitely give you lots to think about and address!
