EXPERT MEETINGS WITH PAP

We want to fight disinformation and give the public a chance to learn about and understand technologies that help protect the environment, have a positive effect on the economy and our lives.

The two-day competition will be accompanied by a series of meetings with scientists, doctors, energy and telecommunications specialists. We will talk, among others on energy efficiency provided by the fifth generation network, application in medicine, creation of smart cities and houses, where automated systems will adjust the consumption of heating, light or water to our needs, supporting the pro-ecological attitudes of society. We will debunk the myths about the negative impact of electromagnetic radiation on human life and health.

About the challenge

What is fake news and why is it so dangerous?

In cyberspace, false information, popularly known as fakes, is appearing more and more often on a scale larger than you think. They pertain to many areas of life, consciously or without being misleading. Anyone can be a victim of disinformation or even fraud. Without realizing what fake news is and how powerful it is, we believe what we read and watch too easily. The time of the coronavirus pandemic has shown the importance of the fight against false information. People started to believe that 5G technology causes Covid-19 disease and cancer, vaccines cause autism, and wearing face masks can be dangerous to your health. The victims of information scams on the Internet are, among others, ordinary people, public figures, companies whose market value is destroyed due to fake news.

We have plenty of examples of fake news!
