Every day a vast amount of misinformation and Fake News are repeated and infinitely shared, reaching millions of people in a short time. The large-scale dissemination of misinformation is one of the major challenges that current societies face, with long-lasting costs to individuals and governments. European Commission’s recent efforts in seeking advice from experts regarding measures to counteract disinformation attest to the urgency of addressing this issue. The fact that people tend to believe in information they repeatedly encounter and to reject claims that contradict what they heard before makes misinformation-correction very difficult. Since most correction strategies entail both a repetition of the false claims and their contradiction, they ironically end up strengthening the validity of the misinformation they attempt to correct. It is thus of the utmost importance to examine the mechanisms that may contribute to the development of effective misinformation-correction actions.
The ultimate goal of the project comprises the development, implementation and experimental validation of low-complexity data-center-network-compatible digital mitigation techniques for effective reduction of the outage constraints imposed by inter-core crosstalk (ICXT) in weakly-coupled MCF-based systems.
O projeto Covid Check pretende ajudar a otimizar a comunicação oficial e a esclarecer as principais questões dos portugueses sobre a pandemia, através da criação de uma rede pública de conhecimento que estará disponível através de um website específico. Desta forma pode contribuir para a otimização dos resultados efetivos de protocolos de comunicação entre as entidades da saúde (Ministério da Saúde, DGS, SNS24, etc.) e os seus stakeholders, a nível interno, e jornalistas e cidadãos, a nível externo.
São resultados esperados: a promoção de mensagens eficazes e claras junto da população; contribuir para a identificação de desinformação que possa ser prejudicial para a saúde pública; fomentar na sociedade a procura por fontes fidedignas. Para isso acontecer: as entidades devem melhorar a sua comunicação com base nos resultados da investigação; os meios de comunicação criar mensagens mais focadas; os cidadãos interiorizar as práticas e comportamentos desejados para a resolução da pandemia. O projeto faz parte da investigação sobre desinformação em curso no MediaLab_Iscte
The outbreak of Covid-19 has had a profound impact on all the social, economic and political life of practically all societies. To help contain the virus and limit pressures on national health care systems, spatial mobility has also been severely affected. Motivated by the rapid spread of Covid-19, countries around the world closed their borders, airlines cancelled their flights and people have been told to stay at home by their governments, limiting human circulation in a manner unprecedented in the post-war period. As a border-crossing and now a border-closing related phenomenon, the global flow of international students has been severely disrupted by social isolation measures put in place without consideration of the consequences for mobility-dependent individuals, a predicament that invites research and analysis. Looking at the Portuguese case, this situation not only reflects the challenges raised by the pandemic in regard to how institutions dependent upon mobility function, but also existing inequalities between the Global North and the Global South, and the socio-economic differentials that have shaped individual experiences of the lockdown: what has become for a many forced displacement from sending countries or an involuntary return home. Some people are evidently better equipped or better situated to cope with the sudden immobility than others. Special attention in our work is given to the impact of lockdown on the quotidian routines of international students, taking into account the new, and existing, challenges they now face, as well as the effectiveness of the response made by host institutions. Empirical evidence is drawn from 30 interviews conducted with international students who were attending Portuguese universities during the lockdown, providing us with illustrations of their capacity to cope with what we have termed ‘pandemic immobility’.
