ADS Coffee & Data offers the opportunity for researchers and business to share their knowledge and give insight on a central theme, specifically on Friday 09 June this will be on Controversy in Web Data. There is also a chance to network with a cup of coffee.

This edition of the ADS meetup will focus on the topic of “How to deal with controversy, bias, quality and opinions on the Web” and will be organised in the context of the COMMIT/ (http://www.commit-nl.nl/) ControCurator project (http://controcurator.org), in which VU and UvA computer scientists and humanities researchers investigate jointly the computational modeling of controversial issues on the Web, and explore its application within real use cases in existing organisational pipelines, e.g. Crowdynews (https://www.crowdynews.com/) and Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (http://www.beeldengeluid.nl/).
