Virtual Event: Combatting Disinformation on Digital Platforms

October 14, 2021, 9:00-10:00 a.m. PST or 5:00-6:00 p.m. BST

Speaker: Victoria Espinel, President and CEO, BSA | The Software Alliance

With the volume of digital content increasing and technology rapidly advancing, it has never been harder for consumers to trust what they see online. Deceptive content – whether deepfakes generated by artificial intelligence or more traditionally manipulated media – can be indistinguishable from the real thing and is being used to push false narratives on social media and malicious websites posing as legitimate news sources.

This timely discussion, hosted by the Financial Times in partnership with Adobe, addresses the significant problem of deceptive and manipulated content online, focusing on how public-private partnerships, consciousness-raising among consumers, and industry efforts like the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) can help repair and preserve trust on the internet.

Panelists:

  • Nina Jankowicz, Director of External Engagement, Alethea Group
  • Victoria Espinel, President and CEO, BSA | The Software Alliance
  • Dana Rao, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Adobe
  • Richard Waters, West Coast Editor, Financial Times
