NYC – Popping the Filter Bubble

Date: April 24, 2018

Time: 5.30 PM EDT

Way back in 2010, Eli Pariser came up with the term filter bubble, the idea that people on the Internet tend to see only information that agrees with them, and then he published his book The Filter Bubble: What the Internet Is Hiding from You.

As filter bubbles become a more central problem in online discourse, Eli’s been on the hunt for potential solutions. Join us at the next What’s Now: New York, produced in collaboration with the Applied innovation Exchange, where Eli will share what he’s learned about how to pop the filter bubble and begin to knit the internet, the economy, and America, back together again. He has some ideas, but far from all the answers, and he wants to use the event to gather innovators from other fields to help figure this out.
