A downside to social media is that as the algorithms become so good at selecting and displaying content they think we like, we miss out on the things we do not like as they become invisible. How is our ability to understand what’s true or false in the world impacted when Facebook filters out what is not consistent to what we already believe? Can we even find out the facts when Google searches provide different answers depending on who is looking for something?
Per Grankvist has the answer. He is a respected journalist and the author of the acclaimed essay “A World of filter bubbles”. During an instructive and entertaining seminar he will explain how the filter bubbles work and what we can do to pop or put holes in them.
