Lies, Trust, and Technology:  Dr. Jeffrey Hancock
Since the beginning of time, trust has held together our communities. With technology mediating so many of our interactions, more opportunities to deceive one another exist. Is trust one of social media’s most serious casualties? Or is tech is ushering in a new era of trust? This talk draws on psychology and media studies to consider the possibilities.
