MediaFutures Key Researcher Alain Starke is co-organizing a workshop on normative design and evaluation of recommender systems during the 17th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems, RecSys ’23.
NORMalize sets out to provide a platform for researchers and practicioners from different domains to discuss challenges related to the normative design and evaluation of recommender systems.
In this workshop they examine the question whether news recommenders should provide sufficiently diverse recommendations. Should we strive to expose users to content that contradicts their political beliefs?
It is RecSys’ first Workshop on Normative Design and Evaluation of Recommender Systems and will take place on Tuesday September 19, 2023. Remote participation is possible.
The morning is an on-site, while the afternoon offers a hybrid format.
