No video of talk was recorded per the speaker’s request.

Abstract:

The Algorithmic Turn

From today’s vantage point, we find it hard to imagine a world without algorithms and what they do for us, even as the Cambridge Analytica scandals force a reckoning with the shadow capture of large data sets and what that does to us. In this talk I pose a counter-factual for thinking about the perils of fast knowledge in slow time.
