Assistant Professor - Department of Informatics, University of Zurich
Lab Alumnus

Anikó Hannák is an assistant professor at the Vienna University of Economics & Business and faculty member of the Complexity Science Hub. Her main interest lies in computational social sciences. She is focusing on the co-evolution of online systems and their users with a focus on algorithmically aided online platforms. Since big data algorithms learn on human data, they are likely to pick up on social biases and unintentionally reinforce them. In her PhD work, Aniko created a methodology called "algorithmic auditing," which tries to uncover the potential negative impacts of large online systems. Examples of such audits include examining the filter bubble effect on Google Search, online price discrimination or detecting inequalities in online labor markets.
