Recommendation algorithms are all around us – suggesting connections on social networks, videos we should watch, songs to listen to, and much more. This session introduces and explains recommendation algorithms for a non-technical audience. It explains where we encounter recommendation algorithms, how they function, and why they are used so widely. It also explains how they influence our information and media diets, and mediate our whole online (and frequently offline!) experience.
