Our February speaker, James, “Chip” Cottrell, will talk about the efforts of international organizations to tackle the global issues created by new technologies including AI, big data and efforts by Russia and other countries to weaponize “fake news”. Through Stockholm University’s eGovLab, Chip is currently an advisor to Co-Inform, a European Union funded effort to develop tools to counter the efforts of certain nations to expand their influence abroad through the spread of misinformation.  He will update us on efforts to create tools to help citizens, journalists and policymakers  counter the effects of misinformation.  More information or register here.
