Are you Over-Investing in Social Media?


Social media spending can quickly rack up when your business is gung-ho with its strategy and goes in all guns blazing when it comes to social marketing. If there ain't no strategy then it's likely you won't generate the fruits of your labour. And it'll be difficult to work out what's going right and what's going wrong when everything's so crazy and chaotic. The truth is that when you don't really get social media or what the freak is going on, you'll probably end up overspending out of pure confusion. Or, you'll spend more on things that you don't need to and less on the really awesome stuff that'll make a big difference to your business.

Social Simulation for Social Justice

AAAI Conferences

We argue that social simulation can help us understand social justice issues. In particular, modeling certain social dynamics within computational systems can be used to creatively explore and better understand the social and identity dynamics of oppression. Writing theories of oppression in code forces us to explicate everything, and question what we leave out or what we can’t account for. As an early step in this direction, we present an in-progress social simulation of group discussion in activist meetings, developed in the already-existing AI system, Ensemble. Through this minimal, highly constrained social arena, we can explore wide-reaching phenomena like privilege, intersectionality, and power dynamics in nonhierarchical groups, but in a way that’s grounded in concrete, person-to-person interactions. We propose that this kind of social simulation can aid in the process of unlearning hegemonic ways of being, and imagining liberatory alternatives.
