GeekSpeak – Fake News! What is it? How do we deal with it? Join the Discussion Saturday Oct. 26th at 12pm SLT

 We hear about fake news more and more these days.  But what is it?  Do we have to deal with ‘alternative facts’, in the words of KellyAnne Conway?  Do we need a Ministry of Truth in Facebook?  Is there any way to guarantee that some news is not fake?
Do we have to live in a world where fake news is always possible?  Have we always lived in such a world?  Will we forever live in a world where you have to accept the possibility that you are acting on fake news?
Could there be an AI that would determine that all the news you get is real?  Would you trust it?
Come to GeekSpeak to discuss reality in the news rooms.  Bring your friends.
IM Vulcan Viper if you have any ideas for new subjects.
