"Post-truth is what happens when our ability to trust reality breaks down" - thus says Matt Webb (UK) Technologist and Investor with R/GA Ventures at Techfestival 2018, where he delivered an insightful keynote on the technological trends and drivers giving shape to the post-truth society. Watch his full keynote talk here to learn what Webb had to say about i.e. facial synthesis technology and voice synthesis software that manipulates the facial and audio expressions on videos, enabling users to make videos that make it look like anyone you want is saying whatever you want them to say, even though it did not really happen.
