Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan, CEO of the Boston Global Forum, will speak at the International Scientific Conference Preventing and Handling Online Fake News – Theory and Practice, chaired by Vietnam Ministry of Public Security’s Theorical Council, March 2, 2023, in Vietnam.
He will present the topic Ethics Code of Conduct for Cyber Peace and Security and Combating Disinformation in the Age of Global Enlightenment.
Disinformation and misinformation are major challenges facing society today, and solving them is essential to building a trusted information society based on accurate and reliable information. Disinformation and misinformation can have serious consequences, including spreading false ideas, undermining public trust in institutions and experts, and even influencing elections and other important decisions.
AIWS – the Age of Global Enlightenment, is a vision for a future in which humanity uses science and technology to create a better world for all. In this vision, disinformation and misinformation are seen as serious obstacles to progress that need to be addressed.
Solving these issues will require a multi-disciplinary approach that brings together experts from the fields of technology, media, education, and policy. This will involve developing better algorithms and tools for detecting and removing false information, educating people about how to identify credible sources and recognize false information, and strengthening institutions that promote accurate and reliable information.
Ultimately, the goal of combating disinformation and misinformation is to build a society that is based on truth, trust, and mutual understanding. By working together to solve these issues, we can create a future that is more enlightened, more connected, and more just for all people.
Combating disinformation and misinformation is a complex issue that requires a multi-pronged approach. Here are 7 solutions that can help address the problem:
Media literacy education: educate and use the Ethics Code of Conduct for Cyber Peace and Security, contributed by Boston Global Forum 2015
Collaboration between governments, media companies, and tech firms
Transparency in political advertising
Support for independent journalism
