The use of data and algorithmic processes for decision-making are a growing part of social life. Digital monitoring, tracking, profiling, as well as predicting human behaviour and social activities is at the core of the information order often described as surveillance capitalism. In her lecture, Lina Dencik will present research that examines the implementation of data-driven systems in practice across pertinent sites of governance.
