Who’s lying on the net? From bots, trolls and other actors – panel discussion with Mike Preuß

In order to be able to move safely through the Internet, knowledge of the technical possibilities of manipulation is crucial. Above all, the targeted influencing of discourses and opinions has become a major topic. Terms such as “fake news”,”filter bubbles”,”social bots” and “big data” characterize the debate about digital communication.

Dr. Mike Preuß spoke at the panel discussion “Wer lügt im Netz? – Von Bots, Trollen und anderen Akteuren” in the Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften about the detection of propaganda attacks on social media.
