DAPS 2017
Description:

The increasing availability of Big Data, able to capture diverse collective phenomena, provides an unprecedented opportunity to explore the patterns underlying success. From the strategies followed by successful sportsmen to the emergence of runaway videos on YouTube, from popularity in social media to rising starts in the scientific enterprise, from widespread technologies to groundbreaking innovations, there is wealth of data that can be explored to answer common questions: How can we measure performance? What are the common patterns of success?

The rapid growth of the Internet and the Web, the speed with which global communication and trade now takes place, and the fast spreading around the world of news and information as well as epidemics, trends, financial crises and social: these are all signals that mankind has entered a new era, a new techno-social ecosystem whose inner mechanisms are different from before, and largely unveiled.

Conference on Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency FAT*

FAT* Conference
Description:

Algorithmic systems are being adopted in a growing number of contexts. Fueled by big data, these systems filter, sort, score, recommend, personalize, and otherwise shape human experiences of socio-technical systems. Although these systems bring myriad benefits, they also contain inherent risks, such as codifying and entrenching biases; reducing accountability and hindering due process; and increasing the information assymmetry between data producers and data holders.

SoBigData Bootstrap Workshop
Description:

Social mining has the potential to provide a privacy-respectful social microscope, or socioscope,
needed to observe the hidden mechanisms of socio-economic complexity.
There is a fertile ground for further aggregation of researchers and stakeholders, towards the
creation of a European Laboratory on Big Data Analytics and Social Mining, capable of boosting
research and innovation in the deployment of big data analytics, social mining and privacy/trust
technologies to face global challenges.

Protecting your privacy in a networked world – IDEA Summerschool 2013

Description:
Personal information has increasingly become accessible online: browsing through social network sites – such as Facebook and LinkedIn – people tend to think that they can draft a profile from each other. But what more information of you is out there? Are you aware of what others know about you? The increased use of information technologies challenges us to rethink whether our privacy is potentially at risk and what we should do to create sufficient protection.

Pairwise relationships, referred to also as pairwise constraints, generally contain less information than class labels, but, in some contexts, are easier to obtain from human supervisors.
