Digital Platforms and Societal Harms

October 2, 2023 - October 3, 2023

Digital Platforms and Societal Harms

  • In July 2023, the World Economic Forum released its Chief Risk Officers Outlook, ranking misinformation and disinformation as a top 10 external risk, highly likely to have a severe impact on organizations by the end of 2023.
  • In August 2023, the Anti-Defamation League and the Tech Transparency Project released findings from two studies that concluded that Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter recommended explicitly anti-Semitic content to test personas of different ages and genders who searched for or looked at conspiracy theories and other topics.

In October 2023, we come together as a community to address these rising issues.
