On Demand from: 2 October
Remind me: Save to calendar

In 2018, data scientist Christopher Wylie released a cache of documents that revealed the illegal practice of harvesting data to target certain people and influence political opinion. He witnessed firsthand how culture, information and algorithms were being weaponized by militaries, governments and companies to undermine elections around the world. 

Russian investigative journalist Andrei Soldatov, who co-founded Agentura.ru, a watchdog of the Russian secret services’ activities, details how the Russian state controls the country's internet. 

Join Wylie and Soldatov for an unmissable discussion, hosted by Lenore Taylor as part of Antidote 2019.
