Evan Soltas, an undergraduate associate of our Center, together with former Google data scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz (who visited JRCPFF for a public talk, "Big Data and the Social Sciences," in February), contributed an opinion piece for The New York Times, which was published on Sunday. 

Titled "The Rise of Hate Speech," the article describes a dataset of Google searches from 2004 to 2013 and the disturbing upward trend of anti-Muslim sentiments and crimes suggested by their findings.
