Description

What role will AI play in the future of fake news and misinformation? What does this have to do with our brains’ internal models, with voice passwords, and with what Eagleman calls "the tall intelligence problem"?

I think you may be missing the point on Wikipedia. That isn't just a bunch of viewpoints on "both sides" of issues. Key is that there is only one page and one reality for any topic. That is achieved by constantly weeding out misinformation and falsehoods by administrators. In contrast, social media amplifies emotionality and feeds the known biases of the human brain. I think your mental model of how much people hear opposing views is way too optimistic. But I hope you're right.
