P. W. Singer and Emerson T. Brooking - Likewar: The Weaponization of Social Media — at Politics and Prose at the Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Citing examples ranging from Twitter “wars” that result in actual casualties and viral information that can change the fate of a nation, Singer and Brooking show that the future of combat lies in social media. Singer, author of the classic Wired for War and an expert on twenty-first century warfare, and Brooking, a writer and research fellow specializing in conflict and social media, combine their areas of expertise for a chilling vision of how national security is increasingly vulnerable to the invasive power of technologies readily available to everyone. As they work toward a new paradigm of war in the digital age, the authors raise complex questions of privacy, truth, how to control internet trolls, and how to intervene when a country uses a phone app to police the thoughts of millions of its citizens.
