NUAS Communications members proudly present the first Webinar of this season. Bellingcat’s Eliot Higgins with his talk, The Precipice of the Misinformation Age. The Webinar will be held on Thursday 23. September 2021 from 14:00 – 15:00 CET (UTC+1).
Eliot Higgins looks at the rise of online misinformation, driven by counterfactual communities fuelled by alternative media ecosystems offering their own version of the truth on subjects as diverse as Covid-19 to the Flat Earth, and asks the question what we can do against an ever rising tide of misinformation, and whether or not the solutions proposed to the problem actually address the underlying issues that brought us to the moment in the first place.
Eliot Higgins is a British citizen journalist and the founder of the investigative website Bellingcat. Bellingcat is an independent international collective of researchers, investigators and citizen journalists using open source and social media investigation to probe a variety of subjects – from Mexican drug lords and crimes against humanity, to tracking the use of chemical weapons and conflicts worldwide. With staff and contributors in more than 20 countries around the world, they operate in a unique field where advanced technology, forensic research, journalism, investigations, transparency and accountability come together.
Let’s do some NUAS networking, learn and share!
