How algorithmic confounding in recommendation systems increases homogeneity and decreases utility

Allison J. B. Chaney, Brandon M. Stewart, Barbara E. Engelhardt
2018 Proceedings of the 12th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems - RecSys '18  
These systems are often evaluated or trained with data from users already exposed to algorithmic recommendations; this creates a pernicious feedback loop.  ...  Recommendation systems are ubiquitous and impact many domains; they have the potential to influence product consumption, individuals' perceptions of the world, and life-altering decisions.  ...  For our simulations (section 4), we use binary item attributes and learn real-valued user preferences. 7 A.3 Social Filtering Social filtering recommendation systems rely on a user's social network to  ...

Enhancing web activities with information visualization

Eduardo Graells-Garrido
2014 Proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '14 Companion  
Sometimes these biases are inherent in social behavior (like homophily), and sometimes they are external as they affect the system (like media bias).  ...  We select a Web activity, identify the biases that affect it, and evaluate how the biases affect a population from online social networks using web mining techniques, and then, we design a visualization  ...  Then, we will design a playful visualization to explore content generated on the social network using a geographical facet.  ...

Cross-Cutting Political Awareness through Diverse News Recommendations [article]

Bibek Paudel, Abraham Bernstein
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The suggestions generated by most existing recommender systems are known to suffer from a lack of diversity, and other issues like popularity bias.  ...  To promote the diversity of views, we developed a novel computational framework that can identify the political leanings of users and the news items they share on online social networks.  ...  A research paper based on this work is currently under submission.  ...

Understanding Longitudinal Dynamics of Recommender Systems with Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation [article]

Gediminas Adomavicius and Dietmar Jannach and Stephan Leitner and Jingjing Zhang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Today's research in recommender systems is largely based on experimental designs that are static in a sense that they do not consider potential longitudinal effects of providing recommendations to users  ...  In reality, however, various important and interesting phenomena only emerge or become visible over time, e.g., when a recommender system continuously reinforces the popularity of already successful artists  ...  The work presented in [33] further builds on the same ABM approach, but focuses on the longitudinal effects of preference biases.  ...

Sina Mohseni, Eric Ragan
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We discuss how improved user awareness and system transparency could mitigate unwanted outcomes of echo chambers and bubble filters in social media.  ...  Further, as demonstrated in recent political events in the US and EU, malicious bots and social media users can create and propagate targeted 'fake news' content in different forms for political gains.  ...  In another work, Hou et al.
