Fake News, Real Consequences
Lecture by Moritz Lapke

31.08.2023, 18:00

In the digital age, where information is spread in real time, an urgent question arises: How can we continue to trust the images that surround us?

The rapid advancement of artificial intelligence has led to the low-barrier production of photorealistic images. Our perception is being challenged.

The arrangement of pixels alone provides less and less insight into the truth behind the images. They are losing their previous evidential power.

As a result, the societal approach to how we consume media may be on the verge of a radical change: How should we deal with the truthfulness amidst the fast-paced news flow? What is authentic, what is fake? Are these outdated categories?

Admission to the lecture is free of charge. Registration via e-mail to post@fkv.de is necessary. Please note that the event will take place in German.
