LinkedIn opens up data to researchers to learn about the job market

移动互联 2018-08-22 阅读原文

In a post-Cambridge Analytica world, giving researchers access to troves of user data may not seem like the best plan. ButLinkedIn has put a number of protections in place to ensure its users' privacy isn't violated. Researchers will only be able to access aggregated, anonymized data and they won't be able to download it themselves. All proposals will also be vetted by LinkedIn's legal and security teams. "In any research we conduct, we seek to ensure that the purpose of the research does no harm to our members, is done in accordance with ethical and legal standards and minimizes the amount of data that is accessed and used," Perisic said in a blog post .

The new call for proposals is part of LinkedIn's Economic Graph Research Program a follow up to its 2014 Economic Graph Challenge . The goal for the the initial challenge and subsequent research partnerships was to create greater economic opportunity through projects utilizing LinkedIn's data. As part of this effort, selected research projects must "relate to economic opportunity with an eye toward enabling a level playing field for economic outcomes."

Submissions will be accepted until December 1st and selected proposals will be notified within three months after the submission period closes. You can learn more about the program and the proposal rules here .
