Misinformation on scientific topics abounds online, both “fake news” and plain misunderstanding. Facebook and Google are now taking steps to counter the spread of false information on their platforms, but they need partnerships with scientists to identify misinformation and promote trustworthy journalism. The Climate Feedback initiative (www.climatefeedback.org) aims to rise to this challenge.

The Center for Data Science and Public Policy has started a Data Science Happy Hour to get people across campus together who’re working in different areas using data and computational methods. There are no talks and seminars for now - just good people mingling, snacks and drinks. 

The first in the series is this Thursday (Jan 12) at 4pm in the Computation Institute (Searle 240).
