Fake News is a growing phenomenon, as Donald Trump himself said "Fake News has never been more voluminous or more inaccurate"... or did he?

Whether Fake News is being shouted out by Trump or called out on social media, no one is immune. With social media giants failing to stop the spread of incorrect information, Fake News games and AI techniques to try and spot these fabricated stories, it is now a daily feature in our lives and here at the Risk Institute we think it’s about time we had a pint and a discussion about just what Fake News is!

Join us for an evening in conversation with specialists in fake news, how its spread and why people believe it. We'll have drinks and a fun pub quiz - can you tell what’s fake and what’s real?

Speakers:
Dr Paul Christiansen - Origin of Fake News
James Butterworth - Machine Learning in Fake News
Micheal "Marsh" Marshall From The Merseyside Skeptics Society - Flat Earth

Free drink on arrival.
