Kenny Joseph, University at Buffalo | Do real people see fake news on Twitter? Abstract:
Joseph will discuss results from a paper in which his team examined exposure and sharing patterns of fake news on Twitter by accounts matched to U.S. voter registration records. Their analysis was carried out over a panel of 16,442 voter registration-linked Twitter accounts and over 648M of their potential exposures to political news URLs. Joseph will discuss results regarding the prevalence and concentration of fake news, as well as the structure of the fake news media ecosystem, and touch on difficulties associated with the accurate definition and measurement of fake news in social media. The talk will conclude with some open methodological issues in the broader study of online misinformation. This is joint work with Nir Grinberg, Briony Swire-Thompson, Lisa Friedland and David Lazer.

How to hire data scientists when it seems like there are none to hire 
Most companies and organizations recognize that data is a critical asset. Yet extracting actionable information from big data requires highly specialized skills. This year 4-5 million jobs will require data analysis skills.​ IBM predicts the demand for data scientists will rise 28% by 2020. How can organizations recruit and retain top talent in data science? Even though demand for data scientists may exceed supply, how might we build and sustain a diverse, equitable and inclusive data-driven organization? Many organizations and leaders don't try out of fear of failure and a lack of clarity on where to begin. What do we tackle first?
