Technology has made communication easier than ever. As social networks, digital platforms, and emerging technologies keep us constantly connected, many have found that the volume of information has eroded our ability to trust. The University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public explored questions and solutions for building our trust in modern media. The audience participated in an active dialogue that covered ideas and solutions from the community, and heard from researchers on the cutting edge of information and communication. Listen to a conversation about ways to maintain a healthy democracy in the face of misinformation and “fake news” disrupting our systems and even our shared perception of reality.
