"How can we counter disinformation?" Challenge

English

We live in an era of disinformation. Impact and wide dissemination of sound bites have become more important than truth, and manipulation of facts is commonplace. How can we counter disinformation? What innovative ways can technology be used to combat fake news?

The Embassies of Germany and France, in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada and the University of Ottawa, are launching a project on the topic of disinformation. This project will bring together students from diverse background to propose a digital tool for understanding and decoding disinformation.
