Research Interests

  In recent years, my research interests have gradually turned from technology itself to information society studies. I investigate how people create and use the Internet, big data, algorithms, and artificial intelligence, and how these technologies influence individuals and society (e.g., fostering opinion polarization or deliberation, deteriorating or mitigating social inequity). This is an interdisciplinary research area; it is related to computer science, communication, sociology, and philosophy. Hence I have endeavored to study social sciences and humanities as well. In the technical aspect, I focus on data analysis with R, text mining, and social network analysis. The research topic of my master’s thesis is “Internet-mediated public deliberation.” My thesis is jointly supervised by a professor of computer science and a professor of sociology.

  近年來我的研究興趣逐漸從純技術轉向資訊社會研究,我關心人們如何創造與使用網際網路、大數據、演算法、人工智慧,這些科技對個人與社會的影響為何(例如:促使意見極化或審議,加劇或緩和社會不平等)。這是一個跨學科的研究領域,與電腦科學、傳播學、社會學、哲學都有交集,因此我也投入許多心力唸人文社會學科。在技術上,我專注於以 R 語言進行資料分析、文本探勘、社會網絡分析。我碩士論文的研究主題是「網路中介的公民審議」,由交大資工系與清大社會所的老師共同指導。
