Algorithmic Bias in Search and Research

April 18, 2018, 4:00pm
Algorithms shape our everyday access to information, defining what we can and can not find online. Safiya Umoja Noble's (USC) forthcoming book Algorithms of Oppression explores the algorithms that form the backbone for services like Google and Facebook, and the ways in which these algorithms reinforce racist views and encode gender discrimination. As commercial platforms increasingly control how scholars, as well as the general public, access information, it's critical for our students to consider the ways in which these tools are anything but neutral.
