Room L4, 05/12/2018 (16:30-17:15)

This session, positioned within the theme of “Inspiring a digital society”, aims to bring together participants with an interest in the highly important topic of online disinformation. It will feature a number of experts presenting the latest scientific and technological advances that can help mitigate it, and propose solutions and initiatives that tackle information manipulation.

Key questions to be discussed include the definition and types of disinformation, case studies and lessons learned from past incidents; tools and services that can be used for debunking misleading online content and inaccurate information; latest scientific advances from the fields of artificial intelligence, web mining, big data, multimedia forensics, and social network analysis that can help tackle the problem; and open challenges and future research directions.
