CSH Seminar Talk
Description:

While Information Communication Technology (ICT) has offered us news ways to communicate and socially interact, it leaves behind digital traces of our individual behavior as records of ever-growing datasets. The study of such data using computational analysis and modeling with Network Theory approach can give us unprecedented insight into human sociality and to the structures and processes of social life and the society. This is well-demonstrated by our analysis of the dataset of mobile phone communication-logs, confirming the Granovetterian picture for the social network structure, i.e.

Polarization on Social Media

Description:

This tutorial presents a systematic review of the study of polarization as manifested online, in particular on social media. In the first part, we clarify the concept of polarization, and the related nomenclature, by drawing from the social and political sciences. Then, we focus on the understanding of polarization as manifested online. In the second part, we review techniques for detection, quantification, and mitigation of polarization. Specifically, we show how content and network structure of social media can be used to these ends.
