A new trust framework is emerging – fueled by social, economic and technological forces that will profoundly alter how we trust, not only what we see and read online, but also one another. At the same time, technology is influencing how we behave and relate to one another, with AI starting to mediate human-to-human communication. In this talk we will discuss how principles from psychology and communication can help understand and predict trust dynamics in a world in which fake news is salient and uncertainty about AI is rampant. We will discuss several studies that reveal key principles to guide how we think about truth and trust on the internet.
