Become a Citizen Scientist: Help solve search engine secrets

  • -
  • -

Do search engines influence us more than we think? Help us audit their recommendations by joining our citizen science initiative.

The Australian Search Experience project investigates whether users search results are customised based on the profiles search engines define for us. The project is being conducted by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society in partnership with international research and advocacy organisation AlgorithmWatch.

Researchers need your help to gain valuable and otherwise unavailable insights into how search engines are shaping the information Australians receive online. 

The project invites Australian Internet users, over the age of 18, to join as citizen scientists by downloading a simple browser plugin to their computer.
