Misinformation and disinformation are not new. But our emerging dominant communication infrastructure – social platforms – have made it participatory, increased its velocity, and given it the potential for far greater virality.

This talk examines the dual-use technology of social platforms as they become tools for influence operations, and discusses the impact of computational propaganda on trust in our societies.
