Big Data & Systemic Racism – Microchat @ MIT Diversity Leadership Conference
Monday, January 30 – 2:30-3:30pm – Zoom

Chris Hays and Erin Walk lead a group discussion on how ICSR combines data science with the extensive social science literature on systemic racism to develop and harness computational tools that can help effect structural and normative change towards racial equity. They discussed the role that algorithms play in the proliferation of extremism online – be it white nationalism or other toxic social phenomena – and how it affects online and offline behavior.
