Marshini recently presented a longer version of her talk to Imagine All The People On A Trustworthy Internet at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, at the Design, Use, Build seminar at the University of Washington, and the HCI seminar at Stanford University. Despite being virtual, all these seminars were in welcoming, open environments, and it was great to share the insights from the AIR lab with others!
Marshini returned to her PhD Alma Mater, Gatech and the GVU center to give a talk on some of the work from AIR lab that focuses on making the Internet trustworthy and inclusive. A video recording of the talk is available here.
Congratulations to Neha Lingareddy and Brennan Schaffner on their accepted workshop paper for the “What Can CHI Do About Dark Patterns?” Workshop to be held virtually at CHI 2021. They will be discussing barriers to deleting an account on the top 20 social media platforms in the USA.
AIR lab’s Nick Gondek moderated a great panel of “experts in law, technology, and policy discussing the implications of the historic deplatforming of a US president, as well as recent moves by tech companies to mitigate hate speech and other harmful forms of speech online.” Panelists included:
• Amy Bruckman, Professor and Associate Chair in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech
• Shagun Jhaver, Postdoctoral Scholar in the Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington and Affiliate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University
• Randy Picker, James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago
• Phil Stupak, Fellow at Harris Cyber Policy Initiative and Adjunct Lecturer at University of Chicago Graham School
Sadly, the event was not recorded but Nick did a great job! Well done Nick!
