This is a reminder for:
Title: NRG Meeting: Filter Bubble x Recommendation System (Larissa Spinelli)
Title: Filter Bubble x Recommendation System
Presenter: Larissa Spinelli
Filter Bubble is an expression coined by Eli Pariser (1) and is related how
users can have a narrowed access of information caused by a combined use of
personalization and online engines. According to Eli Pariser: "The new
generation of Internet filters looks at the things you seem to like - the
actual things you've done, or the things people like you like - an tries
the extrapolate. (...) Together, these engines creates a unique universe of
information for each of us - what I've come to call a filter bubble - which
fundamentally alters the way we encounter ideas and information."
This presentation introduces Filter Bubble theme and shows couple related
works that attempts to incorporate (by avoid) this effect in their
recommendation system engines. Furthermore, we show some preliminary
results that indicate how some Filter Bubble effects could be detected
through the dynamic between recommendation system and users.
