Podcast Ep.1 Both Sides Are Lying

Podcast Ep.1 Both Sides Are Lying

No-one looks out the train window anymore. Heads bent down as if in prayer, thumbs scrolling; our phone news-feeds delivering dopamine hits more effectively than a casino slot machine. We know the Big Tech algorithms behind the feeds are optimised to press our buttons. The best button-pressers being feed items that are short, sharp and shocking. Nuance, complexity and accuracy be damned. Unfortunately, as the old saying goes:

A lie will go round the world while the truth is pulling its boots on.

This podcast version of the blog post explores how the algorithms are leading to hyper-polarisation and what we can do to address it.
