Are social network algorithms just serving us the news we want to see and giving us a rose-tinted view of the world where everyone agrees with us? And are we becoming more tribal as a result? Our expert panel of Professor Dame Uta Frith FRS, Professor Sofia Olherde and Dr Dan Mercea will discuss all this and more, hosted by the Science Gallery London's director Dr Daniel Glaser.

This event is part of our Twilight Science evening. 

Admittance for our talks is first-come, first-served. Please ensure you arrive early for talks as we can get busy towards the evening and you may need to queue to get into the building.
