With a new administration in Washington and vaccines that hold promise to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control, how will the dis- and misinformation landscape change? What are the latest solutions to rein in the ongoing “infodemic” that undermines public health – and how will authoritarians respond? Join us for a lively conversation that will preview the road ahead and explore the latest innovations technology companies, journalists, and civil society organizations are employing to address the flood of disinformation.
