How will you influence the future of truth?
Every day, more than 2 million articles are published online and 500 million tweets are posted. Information communication technology allows us to consume and share information at an incredible rate, and even delve into alternate forms of reality. But, as we use that information to inform our personal belief systems, decision making, purchases and actions, we must consider whether or not it is actually true – and, how can we know that it’s true?
Ericsson’s introduction of 5G will allow us to connect to people, industries, societies and ideas faster than ever before. But how can we ensure that the information we find, share and consume is factual? What standards are we using? How can those we are sharing with evaluate information for themselves?
This is where you come in. For the Ericsson Innovation Awards 2018, you must answer the question: how can technology improve the way we find, validate and share truth? What new forms of reality, experience, social sharing and information validation can we build to help us in this important endeavour?
Accept our challenge by registering your team and innovative solution by November 15, 2017. The future of truth hangs in the balance!
