Weaponinizing the Digital Influence Machine - Data and Society

Huge (47 page) report from Data and Society about advertising, surveillance, social media, AI, and the political and psychological uses we’ve seen emerging over the last few years: https://datasociety.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/DS_Digital_Influence_Machine.pdf

Honestly I’m not sure who this report is really FOR. It’s too long to be for an uninitiated person, but most of you will probably find it to be pretty 101 level and already know a lot of what it’s saying. Still, might be useful for trainings or talking points, especially broken down into parts.

okay I take that back, after about page 22 or so it gets into more depth so if it’s feeling kind of remedial to you, skip ahead
