More Tech Will Not Save Us from Disinformation

Britt Paris

Data & Society Researcher Britt Paris sat down with Source to discuss audiovisual manipulation.

“While some see technical interventions as the only solution to the spread of audiovisual disinformation, it creates more holistic data on users to be wielded by the powerful and perpetuates the social problems that already exist. Solutions to the problems of disinformation must, at their core, look outward to social structures, practices, motivations, and cultural contexts if audiovisual disinformation and the host of other related problems with technology are to be addressed meaningfully.”
