University brief

Signs of the Times investigates the role of climate tweets on twitter and it’s potential to spread false information that leads to climate change denial. The idea to create a virtual climate ‘rally’ where the contents of the banners are AI-generated through mix-and-matching people’s tweets that includes the word “climate change” and or “#climatechange” “#climateaction”. Signs of the Times uses a program that archives around 10,000 tweets with those specific keywords and randomly generates specific short phrases from the archive. The computer generated phrases are then designed to look like actual banners to 'fool the audience'. The overall aim is for the audience to reevaluate and investigate the information they are taking
