ASPI Speaker Series: AI and Democratic Values

Trolling, dunking and persuading: what is ‘good
faith’ debate in the social media era?
Presented by Regina Rini, York University (Toronto)
Social media is usually a bad place for debating important public policy
issues. Many interactions are obviously in bad faith, from trolls to
automated bots. But if we want to do better, we first need to know what
good faith debate should be – and that turns out to be hard to describe. In
this talk I evaluate several proposals for ‘good faith’ debate, showing
problems with each. I build a model of good faith debate as a cooperative-adversarial
process, and use this model to explain why existing social media platforms
tend to perform so poorly.
