About the project

Algorithms dictate the content you see and engage with online. On media platforms, algorithms feed you with stories tailored to your profiles and based on your past behaviours. The idea of online echo chambers created through algorithms is already firmly in the public psyche. But what also comes into play in this debate is the role of algorithms in the spread of disinformation.

We are using state-of-the art knowledge and data to identify the potential dangers of algorithm-driven media services and how to overcome them. With important questions on how media platforms are shaping thought, it is critical to consider the extent to which citizens are aware of the impacts of algorithms on their content choices and of the validity of the information they receive through social media. Looking closely at the relationship between algorithms and disinformation, the we aim to give practical advice on how governments and media can begin to address the challenges that algorithms create.
