While previous work has addressed the direct effects of misinformation, we propose to study the phenomenon of misinformation about misinformation, or politicians ``crying wolf'' over fake news. We argue that strategic and false allegations that stories are fake news or deepfakes benefit politicians by helping them maintain support in the face of information damaging to their reputation. We posit that this concept, known as the ``liar's dividend'', works through two theoretical channels: by injecting informational uncertainty into the media environment, or by providing rhetorical cover.
DTM API is a musical data sonification toolset for rapid development and experimentation of web-based audio applications. The API offers a data-agnostic, adaptive, and highly interactive real-time system, with reusable and extendable musical structure models to represent data in various ways. The API is being used in several projects, including in Beltline Social Dashboard, Decatur Civic Sonification with Sonic Generator performance, which is presented at Atlanta Science Festival 2015, in collaboration with GTRI Configurable Lab.
Narrative: Reproductive Justice Groups & Molecular Scientists
How do we understand sex difference for sex-balanced pre-clinical research? It is critical to acknowledge and include the difference in clinical research because we don't all have same bodies. We seek to bring this conversation of inclusion to Reproductive Justice Advocates and Molecular Biologists through a conversational web narrative. They will see each other's ideas and vocabularies, coming to an understanding and cornerstone for future dialogue.
