With social media becoming an integral part of day-to-day life, how can we innovate to ensure users are able to enjoy the benefits of entertainment platforms whilst being protected from hate speech and misinformation?
PUBLIC is bringing together perspectives of major platforms, policy makers and the online safety tech sector for a an hour-long panel session to assess the possible routes to removing hate speech across all platforms. Key questions to be discussed include:
- Why do users find it difficult to access authoritative information? And why does misinformation spread?
- How can tech platforms work collaboratively with partners to create and curate accurate information?
- What innovative approaches are there for identifying and removing harmful and offensive content?
- What policies and systems can be introduced to ensure that users are only exposed to content that they can understand and digest?
- What are the responsibilities of content creators and platforms, what resources can platforms introduce to support their members?
- What future product changes and interventions will be most effective in supporting the dissemination and spread of accurate information?
