Next up, the keynote by Peter W Singer: “Technologies that will shape future warfare” and then the panel on same. #WarIn2025
So @peterwsinger just gave enthusiast praise to the creator of these illustrations. Bravo, @therevmountain. #WarIn2025
I really don’t want this to be called “Likewar” but here we are. #WarIn2025
This is a good outline, so far, of how social media is enabling and changing information warfare. Well presented, but no news for me yet. #WarIn2025
Singer thinks the activities around the US 2016 election were like the Spanish Civil War, in that it previewed the technology and tactics that followed in WW2. #WarIn2025
I’d be interested in knowing how much of the detail of this social media information warfare is new to those in the room. #WarIn2025
I think the takeaway here is that Taylor Swift is worse than ISIS. #WarIn2025
Singer reinforces the earlier point, that an organisation like Facebook now decided how a government can communicate with its citizens, etc. #WarIn2025
Singer mentions this sort of thing: “Nvidia’s A.I. Generates Perfect Headshots of Fake Celebrities” nerdist.com/article/nvidia… #WarIn2025
Oh dear. #WarIn2025
Social media companies are working through the five stages of grief. At first they were in denial that there was a problem. Now they’re bargaining, trying to negotiate themselves out of the problem. [Does that mean they’re going to die?] #WarIn2025
Singer is now talking about us all taking responsibility for not sharing fake news. “You are what you share, but what you share reveals who you truly are.” Singer out. #WarIn2025
In which case...#WarIn2025
