Combating Disinformation One Month from the Election: What State and Local Policy Makers Can Do

Carnegie Mellon University is pleased to present an Artificial Intelligence (AI) roundtable in partnership with the Block Center for Technology and Society and the Center for Informed Democracy and Social cyber-Security (IDeaS).

Yet, there is a worrying trend of disinformation groups beginning to go beyond the presidential election and target state and local governments, which often are ill prepared to identify and respond.
