Making Sense of the Digital Society: Our Lives With Algorithms

Moderation: Tobi Müller

English / With German simultaneous translation / 

From detecting anomalies in medical images to drone footage, algorithms are transforming radically how we make sense in society. They reduce the undecidability of what could be happening in a scene into a single meaning. This is problematic because our relationships with other beings cannot be condensed. In her lecture Louise Amoore speaks about what remains of the things which cannot be translated into a single numeric output.
