Computational Fake News Analysis: A Practical Workshop
Description:

The recent past has highlighted the influential role of social networks and other digital media in shaping public debate on current affairs and political issues. Disinformation and the alternative media ecosystem distort societal debates, increase polarisation, and threaten participatory democracy. For instance, the surprising success of Brexit and Trump’s election has been, at least partially, attributed to the unprecedented weave of false information that in both cases have polluted online debate before the vote.

2nd SoBigData Workshop City of Citizens @ Lipari Summer School

Start:
2017/07/19
End:

City of Citizens
Description:

There is an increasing interest among different research communities (ranging from civil engineering to computer science) and industrial stakeholders on build knowledge discovery pipelines over large-scale mobility data sources. However, such availability also raise privacy issues that must be considered by both industrial and academic stakeholders on using these resources. The Workshop has the aim in presenting some emergent studies in mobility data analysis and complex systems in order to raise the interests in the field.

SoBigData: Well Being e Societal Debates
Description:
Il 29 settembre presso l'aula Gerace del Dipartimento di Informatica dell’Università di Pisa dalle 11:00 alle 17:00 si svolgerà una giornata di studio italiana all'incrocio dei due esploratori definiti nell’ambito del progetto di ricerca SoBigData: Well Being e Societal Debates. In particolare, i due esploratori considerano temi attuali riguardanti da un lato aspetti sociali legati alla definizione di indici di studio del benessere e qualità della vita, dall’altro lo studio di dibattiti politici e sociali che nascono sui social network.
