Democracy Affirming Technology: Restoring Trust Online

On July 20, SIIA, in partnership with the Center for Democracy & Technology, conducted an in-person event, Democracy Affirming Technology: Restoring Trust Online at the Capitol Visitors Center in Washington, D.C. Speakers included representatives from Adobe, Center for Data Innovation, WITNESS, the White House Gender Policy Council, National Science Foundation and the National Security Council along with remarks from Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI), Rep. John Katko (R-NY) and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA).

The event identified some of the problems surrounding disinformation online including the threat of deepfake information campaigns to national security and democratic values and discussed solutions such as how the government, private sector, academia, and civil society can collaboratively educate the public to counter disinformation, and restore online trust.
