Are We Equipped to Handle Misinfodemics?

In the documentary podcast series, The Batsapp Project, IES Postdoctoral Researcher Prof. Dr. Trisha Meyer talks about the difference between disinformation and misinformation, ways in which AI can help identify disinformation and misinformation on social media, and the role of tech companies in this process. The Batsapp Project features 3 episodes and you can listen to Prof. Meyer in the 3rd episode titled Flattening Misinfodemics. The Batsapp Project covers lessons learned from Kerala state of India's misinformation management during the 2018 Nipah outbreak there, a situation bearing a lot of similarities with the online misinformation and disinformation about the current COVID-19 pandemic.
