Provost's Discovery Themes Lecturer Program: Eli Pariser

Event: October 15, 2019. Seven years ago, Eli Pariser published The Filter Bubble and introduced a new phrase into the lexicon. Today, we're all living in a filter bubble world – and it's becoming clear that some of Pariser's more dire predictions about the algorithmic fragmenting of truth have come to pass. In this talk, Pariser will re-introduce his original thesis, discuss what's changed since he first wrote the book, and most importantly describe the growing toolset of ideas and interventions that are working to bring people back into contact with each other and with reality.
