A global disruption machine has been roaming the globe for some time now. Seeking political upheaval and piles of transitory revenue it's been rolling along without effective counter-measures. Until Canada. Familiar tactics and methodology have not yielded the same results to date.
A level of political party collusion, be it temporary or strategic, has appeared in Canada like never before. Grievances have always existed between the Provinces and Ottawa but now they are being manufactured and sold as critical national issues. With only partisan aims. Your host will be happy to inform on this vector.
The next common vector of systemic disruption involves corporate media masquerading as journalism. Opinion has always been a big part of ownership, to be tolerated. What's new is the misinformation, gaslighting, clickbaiting and blind political preference without shame. Behavioural scientist and independent journalist Caroline Orr joins us to look at Canada's post-truth mass media world.
The most dangerous vector is ahead of the curve. They are the curve. Big Data owns the disruption game. Psychometrics, AI analytics, micro-targeting and stealth are remaking the landscape. Netwar Systems specializes in Big Data methods with regard to digital ecosystems. With insight, experience, skill and advanced tools, they have unlocked insights around political narratives in the US, Canada, UK, Belgium and Germany. Netwar Systems also identifies disinfo campaigns, botnets and other nefarious activities. They have found evidence of such in Canada. Neal Rauhauser and Jessalyn Hernandez join us to explain their findings and provide context about this situation. Finding demand for their services to decypher Big Data increasing, expansion is necessary. There is no dark money funding for Netwar Systems (see below)
