This portlet should not exist anymore
Are Russian, Chinese, and populist propaganda and fake news really threatening democracy? Are social bots and artificial intelligence changing the public discourse? What is the current state of scientific research on computational propaganda? How will opinion building and rational discourse be possible in the future? How can political parties, the institutions of representative government, and civil society be resilient against machine-driven manipulations?
These and other questions will be discussed by:

- Geysha Gonzalez, Associate Director for the Eurasia Center, Atlantic Council
- Andree Thieltges, Social Media Forensics Expert, Researcher for Political Data Science, Technical University Munich
