iSchoolers in the News
A theory about scatterplot graphs from Assistant Professor Jevin West and colleague Carl Bergstrom, a biology professor and affiliate to the iSchool, was published in Nature and in Fast Company. West and Bergstrom’s idea is that tilting such graphs at a 45-degree angle could make it less likely that people would imply causation by looking at them when the graphs really only imply correlation.
Professor Batya Friedman was part of a panel at the National Academy of Engineering on Monday, moderated by Ali Velshi. The discussion on privacy and security also featured panelists from Microsoft, Google, Facebook and others. You can watch a recording here.
Research done in part by iSchool Ph.D. student Leo Stewart was featured in The Daily Beast. Stewart; lead author Ahmer Arif, an HCDE Ph.D. student; and Kate Starbird, an HCDE assistant professor and adjunct to the iSchool, discovered Russian social media bots imitating voices on both sides of the #BlackLivesMatter debate.
