  • Team Information Polarization 2013 "The Polarization of Information on the Web"

  • Posted in Research Teams :

     


    This team brings together four computer scientists and electrical engineers to develop a robust method for quantifying the degree of polarization between "camps" on a topic by topic basis via Twitter data. This will allow both researchers and consumers of this media to appropriately describe the current state of discourse on the internet. It can also provide insight into how particular groups of people may be more or less susceptible to polarizing information. And, may shed light on how polarization can spread with particular topics.
