I am an information system researcher who mainly focus on to understand the impacts of the behavior of artificial intelligence systems on social media platforms. Machines powered by artificial intelligence increasingly mediate our social, cultural, economic and political interactions. Understanding the behavior of artificial intelligence systems is essential to our ability to control their actions, reap their benefits and minimize their harms. My current research examines how the implementation of recommendation algorithms on social media platforms influence users’ content generation and patience (time preference). I am also interested in investigating the impacts of different digital platform policies on both consumer and producer sides.
I received my PhD degree from the School of Business and Management at the University of Hong Kong Science and Technology, and bachelor degree from Peking University.
