Before You Vote: How to Critically Analyze Your Digital Media Sources, Part III

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technology that is changing and challenging the landscape of just about every field, from medicine and sports to journalism, politics and foreign policy. University of Missouri Associate Teaching Professor J. Scott Christianson (aka Prof. C) will help us explore its potential impact as a source of disinformation, especially during an election year, but also for the creation of new horizons of collaboration. 

Along the way, Prof. C will provide some pointers for surviving and thriving in an AI-mediated world during an election year and beyond.

Adults and teens.
