The Socratic Web

Speaker: Shane Greenup

Fake News has become a huge issue with a great deal of money and resources being invested into solving it. But have any of the suggested solutions got any chance of actually doing that? In this talk Greenup will look at the key problems with all of the major approaches to solving the online Fake news problem. He argues that there is only approach which has any chance of improving this situation: we need to start creating The Socratic Web.
