Fariba Karimi, Computational Social Science at Complexity Science Hub, will be presenting "Network Structure Influences Visibility and Ranking of Minorities"
Restricting their ability to establish connections with majority groups
or to access novel information. In this talk, I show how this phenomenon
is manifested in a variety of online and face-to-face social networks
and what societal consequences it has on the visibility and ranking of
minorities. I propose a network model with tunable homophily and group
sizes and demonstrate how the ranking of nodes is affected by homophilic
behavior. I will discuss the implications of this research on algorithms
and perception biases.
Tuesday, April 13 at 1:15pm ET with the Duke Computational Social Science working group.
