Mackenzie Room, Stanford CA

Reliability of information is at the heart of a global conversation. Questions about authenticity undermine trust in the messages and actions of commercial organizations as well as social institutions.

Leveraging Stanford thought leadership at the intersection of human sciences and information technologies, the #mediaX2018 Conference will bring together Stanford scholars and industry partners for a deep dive exploration of key issues in authenticity, reliability, reputation, transparency and trust. This event is designed to foster an intensive breadth and depth of conversation and connection.

This topic is rooted in the expanding capacity of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence to intermediate between people and data. The #mediaX2018 Conference will explore key aspects of this intersection between media, information technologies (computation, algorithms, machine learning, AI and IoT), and human sciences (social and psychological sciences, policy, communications, law & political science).
