Thesis Title
Finding which side of the bias (Supply-side or Demand-side) favours the spread of misinformation more on social media.

Research Description
Kanika’s research is based on political media new bias focusing on 2016 US elections and is a part of the FATE (Fairness, Accountability, Transparency and Ethics) research project. Automated decision-making systems and machines, including search engines, intelligent assistants, and recommender systems, are designed, evaluated, and optimised by defining frameworks that model the users who are going to interact with them. This research aims to help in answering what consumer behaviour drives media bias.
