Technology has a very important weight in the way we inform ourselves of everything that happens. Not only because of the universal availability of large amounts of information through devices of all types, but because of the way in which the information we seek is selected and presented in digital environments. Faced with an apparent “neutrality” of technology and the algorithms that help personalize our searches, the prism from which we observe reality is far from being neutral and the ability, therefore, of those who design them to influence that what we think and what we do is getting bigger. In this activity we will start from the reflections of the philosopher Joan Garcia del Muro, reflected in his latest book “Good Bye, veritat”, to discuss how technology, language and information influence our lives.
