About the forthcoming book
We are living in the world of internet, and it has become sine quo non for our lives. Digital and technological advancements have pros as well as cons. There has always been a debate on social media and content regulations around the world. Along with social media, fake news has also prospered, and many developing and developed countries have outlawed or in the process of passing legislations to regulate social media, content regulation, protection of intellectual property and use of technology in a way so as to benefit all.
In this global age, it is required to have a coherent and internationally acceptable legal framework to curb the spread of fake news within and across countries. The fact that the safe harbour immunity is available to internet intermediaries and their obligation to act on such fake news arises only upon their knowledge of the same, makes the problem tricky. Therefore, while making any attempt to curb the menace of fake news, the huge silos of data being generated by users necessitate the use of artificial intelligence. The world has seen the impact of Cambridge Analytica and other organisations in changing the political dimensions in different countries.
To achieve an enabling and effective digital infrastructure powered by technology/Artificial Intelligence, what can be important tool pertaining to the rights of the members of democratic societies; how laws of nation-states and legal rights of both the users and the internet intermediaries can be protected at social media.
