Thank you for agreeing to participate in this consultation. This survey is part of a project for the European Commission (DG CNECT) on media literacy and online empowerment issues. We are particularly interested in algorithm-driven media services, i.e., media that utilize computer algorithms to determine what type of content is made most easily available to various types of users and thus what content people are most likely to see.
We aim to explore the interplay between the issues inherent to algorithms used by some media services and our own limitations in the way humans consume and process information. The results of the study will help inform EU media policy by identifying and discussing the emerging challenges of algorithms and offering a first step in addressing them.
There are various media and online platform that use algorithms. For example: 1) creators and providers of original content (such as online newspapers or online arms of traditional newspapers), 2) online news aggregators (platforms that make available content developed by other authors), or 3) social media. The study aims to explore issues and themes associated with all types of algorithm-driven media services and analyse commonalities as well as points of divergence.
In this study we will ask you for your views on a series of emerging findings and on knowledge gaps. We would very much value your input to this survey.
The questions in this survey are based on a literature review conducted by the study team and invite stakeholders to offer their reflections on the review’s results. We will use the data collected through this survey to refine our findings and inform future stages of the project, including further forms of stakeholder engagement.
