Just published in Nature Machine Intelligence: Barriers to academic data science research

Our paper Barriers to academic data science research in the new realm of algorithmic behaviour modification by digital platforms (with Travis Greene and David Martens) just came out in Nature Machine Intelligence

Behavioural big data and algorithmic behaviour modification technologies controlled by commercial platforms have become difficult for academic researchers to access. Our Perspective paper describes barriers to academic research on such data and algorithms, and makes a case for enhancing platform access and transparency.
