Communicating complexity in an age of noise

Short thesis

Ours is an age of noise. Media manipulation, disinformation, distrust. “Deep fakes” breaking evidentiary chains. Amplification and separation upending public trust in “truth.” In this environment, how do media thinkers adapt and shift old communication tactics to provide fresh knowledge that resonates with the public?


Guests from leading evidence-based media and research projects will share new media approaches to sharing urgent facts about our emerging future.

Topics for discussion include formats and tactics for sharing digestible, accessible information; the role of key societal values such as privacy and equity in messaging; and how media leaders can leverage recent public debate about the risks and abuses of technology to encourage a stronger evidence base.
