Public Talk By Geoffrey Bowker The IT-University of Copenhagen April 1st, Aud 2, 14:15 –15:45 PM
In his talk Geoffrey Bowker will explore ways in which the experience of being human is being altered through big data analytics. While there is a filiation with the traditions of governmentality and the control society, the more rapid and pervasive feedback loops of the emergent internet of things mark a qualitative change in the ways in which our personal selves are distributed through our information infrastructures.
