IE Insights Releases Original Documentary “Rethinking Cities”

IE Insights Releases Original Documentary Short “Rethinking Cities”

Film investigates the role of universities in creating sustainable, inclusive, and livable cities.

Urbanization is occurring at a rapid pace, with more than 70% of the world’s population expected to be living in cities by 2050 according to the UN. Infrastructure is already being put to the test – but there is one modern-day natural resource that has yet to be fully tapped: knowledge. It is this topic that is the focus of “Rethinking Cities,” a new documentary short from IE University’s thought leadership publication IE Insights. The 19-minute film explores how universities can be a catalyst for innovation and solutions for the issues facing cities today, including mobility, sustainable development, and waste management.

IE University research reveals most Europeans support making the spread of fake news illegal – and punishing those who spread it

More than a third of citizens believe an AI algorithm would be more productive at work than their boss.

Today IE University’s Center for the Governance of Change (CGC) launches the European Tech Insights Report 2022, which reveals every year public attitudes in Europe towards technology, social media, the future of work, and democracy.

Two years on from the COVID-19 pandemic and 7 months from Russian’s invasion of Ukraine, social media’s key role in spreading fake news and disinformation has led most Europeans (52%) wanting to make such dissemination illegal and sanctioned by law.

The current geopolitical climate has also led to heightened fears of cyber-attacks, with most Europeans fearing one. Nonetheless, the report also highlights that many citizens support the use of technology by their governments and believe technology is strengthening democracy.
