Zelfs na je dood laat Big Tech je niet met rust
18 apr. 2021 - Vorige maand verscheen een app waarmee je afbeeldingen tot ‘leven’ zou kunnen wekken: van je overleden opa en oma tot aan het melkmeisje van Vermeer. Tegelijkertijd zijn we allemaal bezorgd over zogeheten ‘deepfakes’: nepvideo’s waarin politici dingen beweren die ze nooit zouden zeggen. Maar, zo betoogt Miriam Rasch: beide technologieën tappen uit hetzelfde vaatje.

20 feb. 2021 - One. So here's the deal: I didn't get to do a birthday post this year because it was the day after the attempted coup, and it just didn't feel right at the time. We're still in the aftermath - it's been a little bit over a month, and the impeachment trial is winding down - but I feel like there's been enough room now.

How Civil Society Can Combat Misinformation and Hate Speech Without Making It Worse
28 sep. 2020 - In the battle to combat misinformation, researchers have offered clear advice for how journalists should cover and debunk it, but we have very provided little guidance for how civil society should counter media manipulation and disinformation campaigns. The lack of attention to civil society responses is a major gap in the research and it’s becoming increasingly clear that the guidance for journalists does not translate easily to civil society. At this time, we need all hands on deck to ensure a free and fair election. In this document, I explore a set of potential strategies to be used specifically by civil society organizations (CSOs) to mitigate misinformation.

Simulating Democracy
8 oct. 2020 - Jill Lepore is a brilliant and prolific historian with an eye for unusual and revealing stories, and her new book If Then: How the Simulmatics Corporation Invented the Future is a remarkable saga, sometimes comical, sometimes ominous: a “shadow history of the 1960s,” as she writes, because Simulmatics stumbled through the decade as a bit player, onstage for the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, the Great Society, the riots and protests. It began with grand ambitions to invent a new kind of predictive behavioral science, in a research environment increasingly tied to a rising defense establishment amid the anxiety of the cold war. It ended ignominiously, in embarrassment and bankruptcy.
