FBL85: Sandra Matz - Lessons From a Computational Social Scientist
Manage episode 352054550 series 2528126
This week my guest is computation social scientist and professor at Columbia University, Sandra Matz, who recently published her book, The Psychology of Technology: Social Science Research in the Age of Big Data.
In this episode, we explore many different ways in which technology and psychology are influencing one another in the modern era. This includes but isn’t limited to the influence of big data on psychological research, the battle between exploitation and exploration as fundamental dynamics in our digital lives, the ways in which algorithms shape our views of the world, and a whole lot more. Sandra delivers her expertise with candor and humor, and this makes for a truly enjoyable discussion that I hope you’ll all enjoy as much as I did.
