Event Details

Hosted by the Center for Information Technology Policy

Policymakers and the public are increasingly interested in the effects of social media algorithms on society. Two different approaches to studying these systems’ effects on individuals will be introduced. One is a large-scale collaboration with a social platform designed to coincide with the 2020 U.S. presidential campaign, and the other is an experimental research design that can be adapted to assess the impact of proprietary recommendation systems.
