The Social Science One project, spearheaded by Nelson, is a groundbreaking effort to allow academics access to massive Facebook data to study how social media affects democracy. The project comes at a crucial moment after the Cambridge Analytica scandal. It is also an attempt to open important lines of communication between social science and Big Tech. The project is being run by the Social Science Research Council, a nonprofit group.
Under Biden’s leadership, the government will make a major push to improve the environment. Biden will insist that agencies reduce their carbon footprints, and the Export-Import Bank and OPIC will be banned from financing coal-fired power plants. He will also make sure that the U.S. is not the dirty alternative to the World Bank, which has a history of supporting dirty energy projects.
