Richard Graham - Invited speaker

This talk addresses a range of issues concerning the nature of internet search technologies,including how our identities are interpreted algorithmically and how search engines provide individuals with different results based on various criteria. The paper will also consider the social impact of harnessing big data and machine learning to make linguistic judgments,which often lead to the propagation of sexist, racist or extremist views.
