Misinformation Thematic Intelligence Research 2024: Impact on Tech, Media, and Telecom (TMT) Industries Globally

Dublin, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Misinformation - Thematic Intelligence" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Misinformation is not a new phenomenon, but the technology behind it is unprecedented. Big data and artificial intelligence (AI) provide the foundation for digital ecosystems to pursue personalization at scale. With sophisticated algorithms and huge data troves, social media platforms can tailor content to reach those most likely to be influenced. The ad-targeting business model prioritizes profit over quality of content and respect for the user's privacy.

Key Highlights

  • Misinformation poses a major threat to the integrity of democratic elections. In 2024, approximately four billion people will head to the polls, with various actors attempting to influence outcomes by spreading false information. Increasingly, civil society is blaming Big Tech companies for allowing the proliferation of false narratives spread by humans and bots on the web. They stand accused of distorting the information we consume in ways that are bad for us individually and collectively.
  • Some companies are increasing their efforts to combat misinformation without impacting online expression. However, certain social media platforms have relaxed moderation standards, heightening the issue.
