How the Internet is Changing our Lives: From Dating to Politics

Venue: St Aldates Tavern, 108 St Aldate’s, Oxford, OX1 1BU

With the emergence and penetration of Internet based technologies, different aspects of our private and collective lives and how our societies function at different levels have changed. In this talk by Taha Yasseri from the Oxford Internet Institute, we’ll discuss examples from dating and politics, seemingly unrelated, but fundamentally connected!

Taha Yasseri is a Senior Research Fellow in Computational Social Science at the Oxford Internet Institute. He has interests in analysis of large-scale transactional data to understand human dynamics, government-society interactions, mass collaboration, information and opinion dynamics.

This event is organised by the British Science Association, Oxford Branch
