Bubble & Bias is a project that aims to construct a compelling and provocative solution that prompts people to critically reassess the present state of information consumption patterns influenced by AI, businesses, and users themselves.

❚ "Bubble & Bias" Manifesto

◆ Resist Algorithm

◆ Resist Filter Bubble

◆ Empower Freedom to Think

Who should be the information gatekeeper?AI algorithms act as gatekeepers for the overwhelming amount of content available on social media. However, relying on them raises the question of whether we are relinquishing control over the information we receive.
Algorithm design & users' behaviour leads to confirmation bias
Should we let AI determine our identity and influence our thoughts?   Who should control the flow of information?
Graph that shows the evidence of design process
In the design & development process, I experimented to understand people's views about the labelling system I created to combat misinformation. After that, I redefined the concept and held a workshop to spark debates and gather participant feedback.
Resist algorithm- alter the interface and make it easier for users to “keep their digital footprint private”.
Term-of-use summarized at-a-glance
resist filter bubble - If bias detected, window alerts bias & suggests alternative perspectives for broader understanding.
