Research visit to JRC Seville

Status

Last week, I visited the EU Commission’s JRC Seville, where Carlos Castillo and I presented our ongoing work on algorithmic fairness.

A preliminary version of our work is posted on arXiv:

Video for ‘Crazy World’ event

These days, the University of Helsinki Think Corner (Tiedekulma) is organizing “Crazy World” discussion events that deal with international relations, world leaders and authoritarianism, economy 10 years after Lehman Brothers, world religions and Russia. (Link to event description)

Toni Rönni, one of the organizers of the events, asked me to say a few words about ‘social media and echo chambers’ and our recent research that appeared at the Web Conference (for the paper, follow this ACM Link).

Here is the video.
