Truth and Trust Online

Suggest edits

Truth and Trust Online started as a series of private meetings in London in 2019 between a number of researchers and other policy professionals, to discuss the trustworthiness of online information and digital spaces on the internet.

The series of private meetings became an annual conference and a unique collaboration between practitioners, technologists, academics and platforms, to discuss, and collaborate on useful technical innovations and research in the space. The first edition on of the Truth and Trust Online conference was held in 2019 in London. The 2020 conference was online, and it will come back for a third year in 2021, also online, on October 7th and 8th.

Despite being a new conference, TTO 2019 was attended by around 300 participants from industry and academia, and TTO 2020 drew more than 400 participants. Both conferences were sponsored by major industry partners (such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft, Amazon, Bloomberg, Intel etc.), published high-quality contributed papers and had a compelling line-up of invited speakers.

These include Jerome Pesenti (VP of AI at Facebook), Cristian Canton Ferrer (Head of Facebook’s AI Red Team), Rasmus Nielsen (Director at Reuters Institute), Claire Wardle (Director at First Draft News), Judy King (Director at BBC Monitoring), Will Moy (CEO at Full Fact) and a number of distinguished panelists from organizations such as the WHO; Wikimedia Foundation; US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine; and the Harvard Medical School.
