Moderator: Frank Figliuzzi

Information is at our fingertips, but so is disinformation, the damaging and intentional spreading of lies. Barbara McQuade explains the consequences while Jeff Horwitz reveals how Facebook failed to curb the spread of those lies as they became mainstream rhetoric. Then along comes Artificial Intelligence: AI is everywhere, including its somewhat frightening use for facial recognition technology that robs us of our privacy, as Kashmir Hill found.

The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech, religion and the press. As a nation, we are now examining the extent of those rights. How much should we be able to say about individuals or events without common-sense restrictions? What happens when our leaders declare America a Christian nation? Are newspapers and other media too free or are the guaranteed freedoms in jeopardy? Three authors discuss these significant issues of our times.
