Dr. Iulia Cioroianu awarded ESRC IAA UKRI Innovation Fellowship

Dr. Iulia Cioroianu, research fellow at the Exeter Q-Step Centre has been awarded an ESRC IAA UKRI Innovation Fellowship for the Understanding News Bias (UNBias) project. Based on new research regarding online news exposure, Dr. Cioroianu will be working with the IBM Centre for Advanced Studies in Amsterdam to build a mobile news reading app and developing the algorithms that underpin it. The app allows users to evaluate the ideological leaning of the articles they read, estimate how biased their overall media exposure is, and read other suggested articles on the same topic, but covering a broader range of ideological perspectives. The project uses IBM Watson services, and builds upon the NCRM Methodological Innovation project ExpoNET.
