Towards creating socially aware software systems


Owheo 106 - 1:00 pm, Friday 3 October


In social computing there has been some interest in building socially aware systems that assist humans and software agents (e.g. bots) in making decisions about actions they can perform in their situated environment. These include actions that are permitted (permissions), forbidden (prohibitions) and obligated (obligations).

The first part of this talk focuses on the creation of a particular type of socially aware system called a norm aware system that detects social norms from available social interaction data and recommends them to its users. The second part focuses on how norms of software development can be extracted from open source software repositories. A case study of extracting norms and normative processes from Python development mailing lists will be presented.
