Emiliano Treré - Capturing everyday engagements with algorithms: Tips from the field

Capturing everyday engagements with algorithms: Tips from the field

Algorithms are all around us, shaping our everyday actions in an increasing number of social domains. But how can we best capture and make sense of the alliances that we continuously forge with them in the many contexts that we navigate daily? This keynote draws on the core insights of the AlgoRes project to provide hands-on recommendations and reflections on how to research the ways in which people align, subvert, and repurpose algorithmic power.
