How do the bots deceive us?

June 4, 2019 | Media
Every day we are subjected to thousands of bots on the Internet - information on social media, advertisements on the pages of our favorite portals. It is not surprising that in this information crowd, our mind goes to the easy way. The people who use our weakness to mislead us are perfectly aware of it, profiting from it - whether financial or political.

On the eve of the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the ’89 election, Res Publica together with Front Europejski, Fundacja Reporterów, Alliance4Europe and Kultura Niepodlegla have organized a debate to discuss a question of security and sovereignty.

Why do we fall for false information? How does this affect political choices? How are bots used to extort our money? How does the European Union intend to deal with these problems?

Wojciech Przybylski, Piotr Górski, Maia Mazurkiewicz, Agnieszka Holland and Anna Gielewska have answered those and many other questions about trolls, bots and fake news.
