TEC Talks - Mutale Nkonde and Ryan Calo


Location: Zoom

Ryan And Mutale

Please join us on Monday, April 5, at noon EDT for the next in our TEC Talks series, a conversation with Mutale Nkonde and Ryan Calo.

Few contemporary problems can be addressed by reference to a single discipline. Misinformation---a critical issue of our time---is no different. Join us for a conversation between Center for an Informed Public co-founder Ryan Calo, AI for the People founder and CEO Mutale Nkonde, Notre Dame Technology Ethics Center Director Mark McKenna, and Notre Dame-IBM Technology Ethics Lab Director Elizabeth Renieris on the importance of interdisciplinary teams to understanding and resisting misinformation.
