Truth Talks: Digital Trends Shaping the 2024 Elections – Election Briefing Series














Event Details

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

In 2024, with over 40 national elections on the horizon, the global spotlight is focused on the intersection of technology and democracy. While technology has been a significant player in political campaigns and discourse for over a decade, the pace of change in recent years and months has been unprecedented. The advent of social media, big data analytics, and the proliferation of online platforms has fundamentally altered the landscape of electoral processes, challenging established norms and inviting both opportunity and risk. As we navigate this ever-evolving terrain, it becomes imperative to address critical issues such as foreign and domestic interference, misinformation, truth, trust, and the quest for authoritative information. 

From dissecting the tactics of foreign actors to discussing the implications of algorithmic biases on public discourse, this event promises to provide a comprehensive understanding of the complex dynamics shaping the 2024 elections in the United States and beyond.
