The Battle for Reality

Screen Time

14-02-2024 • 32 mins

Misinformation is tearing our country apart, and trust in our institutions, and in each other, is at an all time low. Some experts think we're at a breaking point, and new technologies are only going to make misinformation more persuasive - and more corrosive. To learn about the importance of social media and AI regulation for the protection of our information ecosystem, we talk to Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen and tech regulation expert Sam Gregory.

Is it possible to pull the country back from the brink? Or have we already lost the battle for reality? Peter Macleod talks us through one possible step in the right direction.
