[1902.10730] Degenerate Feedback Loops in Recommender Systems
"Machine learning is used extensively in recommender systems deployed in products. The decisions made by these systems can influence user beliefs and preferences which in turn affect the feedback the learning system receives - thus creating a feedback loop. This phenomenon can give rise to the so-called "echo chambers" or "filter bubbles" that have user and societal implications. In this paper, we provide a novel theoretical analysis that examines both the role of user dynamics and the behavior of recommender systems, disentangling the echo chamber from the filter bubble effect. In addition, we offer practical solutions to slow down system degeneracy. Our study contributes toward understanding and developing solutions to commonly cited issues in the complex temporal scenario, an area that is still largely unexplored."

The Work Required To Have An Opinion
If you can argue better than the smartest person who holds the opposite view, that is when you are entitled to hold a certain view.

And you need to become your most intelligent critic. Part of doing that means you need to have the intellectual honesty to kill some of your best loved ideas.

Segregated social universes, an industry moving from red states to the coasts, and mass media's revenue decline: The disconnect between two realities shows no sign of abating.
