CCT students Lucas Regner and Katie Armstrong accepted for publication
Posted in News
A portion of Lucas Regner‘s thesis research on personalization algorithms on YouTube — and its potential to create far-right and violent content “bubbles” around users — will be published in the JEX Journal for Deradicalization and Democratic Culture (new window). In his thesis, Lucas developed a novel methodology to measure how personalization algorithms affect a user’s experiences of social media sites.
Katie Armstrong‘s review of Big Data: A Revolution by Viktor Mayer-Schonberger and Kenneth Cukier will be published in Information, Communication & Society. Her review finds value in the book’s timely exploration of diverse uses for big data analytics, but is critical of its almost solely business focus and the too-confident perspective the authors have for data itself.
