With Antonin Atger, learn to understand how the human brain works, why it is so easily taken in by fake news, how social networks take advantage of it, and what can be done to regain control.
Antonin Atger is a science fiction author, passionate about science and fiction. He imagines with his saga Interfeel a new social network allowing to share his emotions, a technological marvel which opens the door to many abuses. He uses the prism of fiction to reflect on the place of social networks in our lives, for better or for worse.
Beyond literature, he is a doctoral student in social psychology and speaks regularly to talk about Fake News and conspiracy theories: why they are so attractive, and how we can stop their growing influence.
