Every field of human activities is characterized by the emergence of novelties: a new song, a new movie, a new book, a new Twitter hashtag, and so on. The introduction of a new idea expands the possibility to explore newer concepts and, once introduced, this new idea has to compete with other concomitant ideas. Only some of them will stand out from the crowd, while the vast majority will never become known enough within the population, destined to fade into oblivion.

Finding Fake News

8 June 2017

In 2016, especially after the Brexit referendum in the UK and the Donald Trump presidential election in the USA, media have started to frantically discuss the influence of social networks and microblogging platforms on people's knowledge exchange and behaviour. The more complex phenomenon of online information propagations on networks like Facebook and Twitter, not only linked to political elections but to several aspects of everyday life, has also attracted the interest of computer scientists, sociologists, information technologists, and marketing specialists.

Constructor theory

Today citizens are becoming more and more subject to socio-economic and political decisions made using statistical models trained on cross-referenced data, originating from governments, industry and people themselves (through social media). However, even the cleanest of datasets may contain bias: starting from gender, age and/or ethnicity and getting to full-blown discriminatory profiling. It is therefore imperative to study scientifically the causes and effects of bias in the era of Big Data, in order to propose palliative measures.

The recent availability of human mobility data has impacted several research fields, ranging from urban planning to social sciences. One of its most successful applications has undoubtedly been the spatial epidemiology of infectious diseases, though previous works have shown that using different mobility data sources – such as mobile phone data or census surveys – to parametrize infectious disease models can generate divergent outcomes.

Nel 2016, in un solo anno, gli esseri umani hanno prodotto la stessa quantità di dati generata nell'intera storia dell'umanità fino al 2015. E il processo di accelerazione è ancora ben lontano dall'essere concluso: si stima che entro dieci anni, con la diffusione della Internet of Things, 150 miliardi di sensori saranno connessi in rete e la quantità di informazioni prodotte raddoppierà ogni dodici ore. Stiamo entrando nella quinta rivoluzione dell'IT: dopo i grandi computer e i pc, dopo Internet e gli smartphone, l'era dei Big Data.
