Governing Algorithms: A Provocation Piece (2013) #bigdata

“This provocation piece addresses the recent rise of algorithms as an object of interest in research, policy, and practice. It does so through a series of provocations that aim to trouble the coherence of the algorithm as an analytic category and to challenge some of the assumptions that characterize current debates. The goal of this piece is thus to stimulate discussion and provide a critical backdrop against which the Governing Algorithms conference can unfold. It asks whether and how we can turn the “problem of algorithms” into an object of productive inquiry” (Barocas et alii, 2013). 05-2456431 alle 08.52.14
