    After a brief introduction of the projects UnCoVer and PHIRI, experts with different backgrounds (from masters of big data to journalists) will present key contemporary topics where communicating science to the general public is essential but not an easy task. Sequentially, experts from the University of Liverpool and the University of Dundee will introduce the participants to the FakeNews Immunity chatbot – an incrdible tool which aims to increase resistance to mis and disinformation in citizens by teaching them how to spot fallacies (arguments that appear to be valid but are not) and identify misleading or deceptive stories. Finally, the participants will be divided in breakout rooms where they will be able to explore the presented tool and hear one thing or two about fallacies from Aristotle, Gorgias, and Socrates themselves.
