About the event
We live in a world of contested truths, alternative facts, and deep fakes. This is a real challenge for observers, advisors and decision-makers who need to decide what is true, what is false, what forms of knowledge can be used, and how the knowledge can be deployed. This multi-disciplinary panel of experts and practitioners provided key perspectives on these important questions. A discussion with the audience followed.
