The U.S. Embassy in Dhaka inaugurated a three-day TechCamp workshop (February 6-8, 2024) that aimed to empower 50 aspiring journalists to combat misinformation, fact check, and learn best practices on Artificial Intelligence (AI). After joining the inauguration program, U.S. Embassy Public Diplomacy Counselor Stephen Ibelli said, “Every day, we are exposed to so much information that we can barely keep track of. Oftentimes, we mix rumors with facts and truths. It is really easy to become confused. To deal with this challenge, we need to equip ourselves with critical thinking and the correct tools to identify.”
Organized by the Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau (ECA) at the U.S. Department of State, in partnership with the Global Youth Leadership Center (GYLC) Inc., TechCamp fosters technological innovation and empowers future leaders to address real-world challenges through pragmatic solutions.
