I just gave a talk on ‘Measuring polarization on social media’ at the MLLN Workshop in Anchorage, Alaska, collocated with IJCNN. Many thanks to Izabela Moise and Nino Antulov-Fantulin for the invitation.

Just had a short visit to Lyon, where I had the chance to talk with the researchers of LIRIS.
Last week I had the opportunity to give a lecture at ETH Zurich on ‘Measuring Polarization on Social Media’, for the course ‘Machine Learning and Modelling for Social Networks‘.
