The 2022 Midterm Election season is dominating news cycles, and so is discussion of election-related misinformation and disinformation. Computer scientist Anima Anandkumar (Bren Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences) and election scientist Michael Alvarez (professor of political and computational social science) are tackling this thorny problem using the power of AI.
In this conversation, Alvarez and Anandkumar will discuss how machine learning can identify and prevent online harassment, as well as how it can help uncover the spread of disinformation on platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Learn about their methods and how the tools they are creating can lead to a more trustworthy social media ecosystem.
