"With the spread of rumor and the distortion of facts, the boundary between true and false has become blurred. This is undermining the very foundations of our societies and democracies and putting lives at risk through the propagation of fake cures, the fuelling of vaccine conspiracy theories, or the spread of racism and hate speech. In this deluge of information, we need more reference points and more rational thinking” - Audrey Azoulay, UNESCO Director-General.
During the Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2023, which starts today, we echo the UNESCO Director-General’s words and underline the effects and risks that improper use of social and global media have on global health. Therefore, the SSPH+ LSS will hold a seminar on “The integration of Social Media and Conversational AI. New developments, opportunities and risks for Global Health” that is free and open to the public.
