Description

"Fake News: The Technology Behind the Trend"

Join The Communications Security Establishment and the Canada Science and Technology Museum for an evening of thought-provoking discussion about fake news. Fake news has rapidly emerged as a key threat to our democracy, with new technologies emerging at a rapid pace.

Invited speakers from the Communications Security Establishment, the University of Ottawa, and Radio-Canada will explore the technology and ethics of fake news, its impact on society and democracy, and what we can do to fight its spread. The session will end with a panel discussion and question-and-answer period.

Come join the conversation and share your thoughts using the hashtag #CuriosityOnStage

The event will be simultaneously translated into both official languages as well as available via live stream from the Museum’s Facebook channel.

Join us between 6:00 and 7:00 pm, before the event, for a small reception along with light refreshments and networking opportunities.

Please note that the event is FREE – however, parking fees remain in effect. To avoid line ups, and access the event on time, we strongly recommend to download the Park Indigo App.
