Is There a Doctor in the House? IPA Board Member Tackles How to Spot Disinformation

Editor’s note: When possible, the Information Professionals Association (IPA) tries to highlight the work and public activities of our members. Dr. Rand Waltzman, IPA Board Member and Deputy Chief Technology Officer at the RAND Corporation, tackles the problem of deepfakes and disinformation, and how to counter them, in a recent Financial Times commentary, “We cannot rely on a digital A-Team to fight deepfakes,” and two upcoming events.
