The Relevance of Algorithms

  • 1. Tarleton Gillespie The Relevance of Algorithms Julian Ausserhofer 24.07.13, HIIG Journal Club

  • 4. "What we need is an interrogation of algorithms as a key feature of our information ecosystem [… &] of the cultural forms emerging in their shadows [… &] attention to […] political ramifications." p. 2
  • 6. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics
  • 7. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion What makes it into an index and what is excluded? - algorithms work on top of databases - data must be collected, processed & made "algorithm ready" - data is designed to be fit for collection - criteria for in- or exclusion are usually not transparent
  • 8. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6.

  • 9. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion Attempts to know and predict users - "second index " (Stalder & Mayer, 2009) - "not just provide information to users, […] also providing users to their algorithms" (Gillespie, 2013, p. 7) - questions of privacy, representation & access - example: real-time bidding
  • 10. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion Evaluation signals are opaque - every algorithmic decision is based on inscribed criteria or signals, that are mostly kept secret - a "black boxed" technology, but not stable (Latour, 1987) - the role of the "inscriber"

  • 12. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion The assurance of impartiality - objectivity has been a disputed concept, long before public relevance algorithms - algorithms work as "stabilizers of trust " p. 13 - a way to deflect responsibility? (Morozov, 2011)

  • 14. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion Users reshape their practices to suit the algorithms - algorithms "induce subtle reorientations of […] practices" p. 18 - content is shaped to make it algorithmically recognizable - testing and reverse engineering of algorithms - users "domesticate" algorithms, changes lead to critique

  • 16. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion Algorithmic presentations of publics shape a public's sense of itself - "algorithms are a key technological component " of mediated publics p. 22 - "calculated publics"? p. 23 - the representations of public get again taken up by users or authorities

  • 18. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion Ausserhofer & Maireder, 2013
  • 19. 1. Patterns of inclusion 2. Cycles of anticipation 3. The evaluation of relevance 4. The promise of algorithmic objectivity 5. Entanglement with practice 6. The production of calculated publics Conclusion - "[…] thinking not simply about how they [algorithms] work, where they are deployed, or what animates them financially" p. 25 - "not just as codes with consequences, but […] a new knowledge logic" p. 26 - "[…] algorithms remain outside our grasp and they are designed to be." p. 26
