EPISODE 25: TECH AND DEMOCRACY IN 2020
How are tech platforms influencing our democracy? What are we learning from the pandemic and politics, and what can be expected post-election for tech companies and policymakers? On Episode 25 of “The Future of Democracy,” we’ll talk with sociologist, computer programer and author Zeynep Tufekci, whose trenchant, original perspectives on issues ranging from mask-wearing during the pandemic to the real-world impact of social media algorithms has made her a leading voice on the intersection of technology and society.
