UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, 2155 Center St.

Techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci, an expert on the relationship between social media and social movements, will enter into dialogue with campus hate speech researchers on what it means to enter into an age of digital connectivity and machine intelligence in which algorithms are increasingly used to make consequential decisions about us.

Dr. Zeynep Tufekci is an Associate Professor at the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS), the author of Twitter and Tear Gas: The Power and Fragility of Networked Protests, and a New York Times opinion writer. She is a faculty associate at the Harvard Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society.

The Online Hate Index (OHI) research project seeks to improve society's understanding of hate speech on YouTube, Reddit, Twitter and other social media sites through a combination of citizen science, and machine learning. The OHI research team includes Dr. Claudia von Vacano (PI), Dr. Nora Broege, Chris Kennedy, and Alexander Sahn and it is guided by the Consortium for Research on Abusive Language (CORAL).
