"Engineering Truth"

I am currently developing my research project under the heading "Engineering Truth". In this project I am investigating the relationships between emerging digital technologies and scientific disciplines (i.e. AI generated imagery  such as deepfakes, blockchain and cryptography, and data science) and society's reality perception.
