preview DataSkop


July 2021

Crowd-based data donation platform to investigate personalization.

As part of my job for AlgorihmWatch, I worked on this for over seven months. I was the principal software developer for DataSkop and cooperated with a designer/frontend developer. DataSkop comprises of two parts:

  1. an Electron-based Desktop application where user-specific data, e.g. a personalized recommendation, gets scraped
  2. a website to store donated data as well as let editors run their donation project

We launched our first project on video recommendation on YouTube but we will generalize this software so follow our website closely.
