Dipayan Ghosh, fellow at New America and the Shorenstein Center at the Harvard Kennedy School, will give a talk titled, "Digital Disinformation: The Tools and Technologies Used to Spread Fake News and the Regulations that Can Treat It ." Ghosh was a technology and economic adviser to the Obama White House, and until recently, worked on privacy policy issues at Facebook. In this talk, he illustrates exactly how disinformation campaigns are happening over social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube; how they challenge the American political process; and what public policies can be enforced to regulate against these harms in the future.
