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.
