The Facts about Fact Checking: Crash Course Navigating Digital Information #2

We’re off to fact checking school. This time, John Green is teaching
you how to fact check like the pros. We’re going to walk through the steps that professionals follow, including figuring out who is behind the information we read, why they’re sharing that information, and what kind of evidence exists to back up the claim. We’ll also talk about the difference between skepticism and cynicism, and

What to trust in a “post-truth” world | Alex Edmans

Only if you are truly open to the possibility of being wrong can you ever learn, says researcher Alex Edmans. In an insightful talk, he explores how confirmation bias — the tendency to only accept information that supports your personal beliefs — can lead you astray on social media, in politics and beyond, and offers three practical tools for finding evidence you can actually trust. (Hint: appoint someone to be the devil’s advocate in your life.)

What the Russian Revolution would have looked like on social media | Mikhail Zygar

History is written by the victors, as the saying goes — but what would it look like if it was written by everyone? Journalist and TED Fellow Mikhail Zygar is on a mission to show us with Project1917, a “social network for dead people” that posts the real diaries and letters of more than 3,000 people who lived during the Russian Revolution. By showing the daily thoughts of the likes of Lenin, Trotsky and many less celebrated figures, the project sheds new light on history as it once was — and as it could have been. Learn more about this digital retelling of the past as well as Zygar’s latest project about the transformative year of 1968.

The rapid growth of the Chinese internet — and where it’s headed | Gary Liu

The Chinese internet has grown at a staggering pace — it now has more users than the combined populations of the US, UK, Russia, Germany, France and Canada. Even with its imperfections, the lives of once-forgotten populations have been irrevocably elevated because of it, says South China Morning Post CEO Gary Liu. In a fascinating talk, Liu details how the tech industry in China has developed — from the innovative, like AI-optimized train travel, to the dystopian, like a social credit rating that both rewards and restricts citizens.
