Grey Mirror #3 — Renee DiResta on Russia’s Disinformation Campaign and Our Weaponized Information Ecosystem

This is the 3rd episode of MIT Media Lab’s Digital Currency Initiative’s podcast on technology, society, and ethics called Grey Mirror (Soundcloud, Youtube, iTunes). Unlike Black Mirror, which only explores technology’s negative impacts on society, Grey Mirror explores technology’s negative and positive impacts on society.

Show Notes:

In today’s episode, I interview Renee DiResta, Director of Research at cybersecurity company New Knowledge. (Among many other things.) We chat about her recent report on Russia’s disinformation campaign and our weaponized information ecosystem more broadly. For links from this episode, see:
