Ted Striphas: “Algorithmic Culture: A Vocabulary of Technology and Society”

February 23, 2015 @ 12:00 am - 1:30 pm

Professor Ted Striphas will be providing a talk based on his current book project, entitled Algorithmic Culture, which is about the use of computational processes and how they sort, classify, and prioritize people, places, objects, and ideas. What happens when the work of culture, long performed by human beings, gets outsourced significantly to machines? And where did the notion to do such a thing come from, anyway? He will offer an overview of the work, the use of keywords as a method, an examination of the keyword “algorithm,” and consider the implications of this research for the future of cultural politics.

Monday, February 23, 2015, from 12-1:30 pm, Room 1246, SSH
