Online Discussion: Truth or Conspiracy? Navigating the Internet during a Pandemic.

The UJ Institute of Intelligent Systems, the School of Consumer Intelligence and Information Systems, College of Business and Economics and the Africa Centre for Evidence in collaboration with the Library invite you to an online discussion on: Truth or Conspiracy? Navigating the Internet during a Pandemic.

Bill Gates wants to track your every move!
The Illuminati is planning a global sterilization plan!
The COVID-19 vaccine contains an inactivated virus!
The vaccine will change your DNA and turn you into a mind-controlled servant for the super-rich!

We are inundated with information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and in this information tsunami, it is often difficult to distinguish fact from fiction.  In this series of events, panels of experts will be discussing how fake news is changing our world, how we can discern between what is real and what is not, and tease out some of the problems with current mainstream conspiracy theories. 

DATE: 19 February 2021
TIME: 11h00 – 12h15 CAT
