Carlos Castillo (link) and I presented a poster at StanCon (link) in Helsinki this week. The poster discussed our research-in-progress on our algorithmic fairness project, which looks into university admission criteria.
Aris Gionis and I presented the polarization tutorial at KDD this year (prepared jointly with Kiran and Gianmarco).
Slides are available here.
Kiran, Gianmarco, Aris and I attended the Web Conference in Lyon last week, where we presented our tutorial (link) on polarization on social media, as well as our recent, large-scale study on echo chamber on Twitter (link).
The tutorial was a particularly good opportunity to present a large number of works from the related literature of various disciplines and discuss with the audience. Part of the discussion was reported on Lemonde by William Audureau, who covered the conference for the newspaper.
Attending the Complex Networks conference in Lyon.
Yesterday, I attended PyCon Finland as a speaker. Kiran and I gave a talk on using networkx to visualize interactions on Twitter. The talk was aimed at beginner / intermediate-level programmers and we described, essentially, how we produced the plots that appear in our work¹ on polarization on social media.
The Jupyter notebook for our slides is here.
Update: The video of our talk is posted on YouTube.
In a parallel session, Clemens also presented coding material from his masters thesis on text classification.
