This seminar develops algorithms, systems, and experiments to understand the promises and perils of sociotechnical systems. It shows how carefully targeted information on social platforms can shape people’s social opinions using interactive tools that guide users step-by-step in making appealing promotional videos. It also showcases projects that target more robust integration of knowledge from social science and persuasion theory to software engineering and computing, ultimately influencing the way people perceive existing information, learn new skills, and develop new attitudes.
