2019 Speakers

Organised by members of Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft, AI foundation, Turing, Full Fact, Cambridge, Warwick, Sheffield, UCL, CredCo and Wikimedia – Truth and Trust Online poses a unique opportunity in October.

While trustworthy online spaces benefit everyone, untrustworthy content and behaviour can divide, confuse, and cause real harm. The inaugural Conference for Truth and Trust Online is organised as a unique collaboration between practitioners, academics and tech platforms, to share, discuss, and collaborate on useful technical innovations and research in the space.

Speakers include the VP for AI at Facebook, Director of Engineering at Twitter, Director at the Reuters Institute, CEO of Full Fact, Head of Innovation for BBC Monitoring and many more. See below for the full list of speakers, or see the program.
