1. Talking at #EmTechDigital today on 'Preparing for #Deepfakes: Trust and Truth' placing in broader framework of how we think about AI and social good. My cliffnotes here in this thread events.technologyreview.com/emtech/digital… (in great company with @red_abebe and @latonero)

China's positions on the 346 recommendations it received during last year's #ChinaUPR: 284 accepted and 62 not accepted "because they are inconsistent with China’s national conditions, contradictory with Chinese laws, politically biased or untruthful." lib.ohchr.org/HRBodies/UPR/D…
