Disrupting Disinformation w. Chris Kremidas Courtney

How will the metaverse supercharge disinformation? How does immersion interplay with emotion? Can nation states disperse the metaverse? What digital rights should we fight for? All this and much more.

Explore the new frontiers of disinformation and disruption with futurist and policy expert Chris Kremidas Courtney. We discuss the threat of surveillance in the metaverse and how new metaverse technologies could supercharge disinformation, the fight for digital rights, how emotion overrides reason within immersive experience, the role of nation-states in this new space, how policymakers can get ahead of the private sector in defining norms for emergent technologies, the divergence of metaverses due to geopolitical competition, the politics of platform governance and many more topics.
