ODISSEI Grant Support Information Session

On 15 December, from 12:00 to 13:00 hours, ODISSEI is organizing an information session on how the national infrastructure can support researchers in their upcoming ERC or NWO funding application. Facilities that ODISSEI and its partners offer can help elevate grant proposals and offer a comparative advantage in the application process. Dr. Zoltán Lippényi (University of Groningen), who has made use of the ODISSEI Grant Support, illustrates this by sharing his experience: ‘ODISSEI's expert advice on linking survey and register data and their willingness to cooperate in establishing a data infrastructure for inequality on the new ODISSEI portal were helpful, as they significantly contributed to a successful VIDI grant application in 2021.’ 
During this session, dr. Kasia Karpinska, ODISSEI Scientific Manager, will sketch the opportunities present at ODISSEI and will answer the questions of the potential applicants.

ODISSEI Lunch Lecture: The robot and the brain

On Tuesday 6 December from 12:00 to 13:00 hours, dr. Irina Lock (University of Amsterdam) will give an online Lunch Lecture on a machine learning image classifier built to explore how AI is portrayed in the media. The classifier automatically categorises online images in different pre-defined frames of AI and was developed in collaboration with data scientists. In news media and online public discourse, digital technologies such as machine learning applications are often portrayed as magical “artificial intelligence” (AI). News articles often frame AI’s risks versus benefits. However, there is no systematic knowledge of the ways in which AI is framed. This project analyses the images presented alongside coverage of AI to better capture the representation of AI in the media.

Christiaan Meijer, research software engineer from the Netherlands eScience Center who programmed the classifier will complement Lock’s talk with his presentation on the technical execution of the project.

Looking back on the ODISSEI Conference

On 3 November, the ODISSEI Conference for Social Science in the Netherlands 2022 took place. The conference, which welcomed over 300 participants, was the perfect platform for anyone interested in computational social sciences to learn, share, and network. Next to the two inspirational keynote talks by Professor Frauke Kreuter and Professor Matthew J. Salganik, researchers from many different backgrounds presented their work throughout twenty differently themed sessions. Go to the article below for photos, videos, and more on the day itself.

I love PIDs - and so should you!

Imagine you are reading an interesting article online and the article refers to a paper that was written a few years ago that sounds very relevant for your current work. Wanting to know more, you click on the link to the paper, only to see “404 Not Found” appear on your screen. Persistent Identifiers or PIDs aim to solve this and other problems with identifying and accessing digital resources. In this article, Ricarda Braukmann (DANS & ODISSEI Fair Support Team) explains what PIDs are, what role they play in making research more FAIR, and how you can use them in your own work.

Mass online experiments and the ODISSEI Portal in the new E-data

In October, the new E-data was published, including a news article on the newly launched ODISSEI Portal, explaining how it can help you search metadata of a wide variety of datasets in the Netherlands, including CBS data and LISS panel data. This E-data also contains an article on innovative ways to conduct social science experiments, focusing on ODISSEI’s recently completed Mass Online Experiment Lab pilot. E-data talked to one of the project leaders, Rense Corten (Utrecht University), to hear more about the project and the plans to further develop the Lab in future.
