Information and media in all forms now permeate our lives in complex, dynamic and interacting ways. They offer immense opportunities for human development and knowledge sharing, but at the same time, they pose critical challenges to existing ways of life, cultures, civil liberties and value systems. Challenges include the persistent tracking of individuals and selling their personal data, the proliferation of misinformation and disinformation, increasing corporate control over information processes, the infusion of political influence over the creation and dissemination of information and media, and compromised human capacities for self-determination through Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques. This presentation will talk how these challenges need to be addressed in schools and universities drawing upon several initiatives being taken at the University of California, Los Angeles and other schools and colleges in the region.
